In the winter months, we partner with Room in the Inn to provide meals and shelter for men experiencing homelessness in Nashville. If you’re interested in serving with us, please contact us.
Room in the Inn’s website describes the founding:
Room In The Inn began in 1986 when founding director Charles Strobel, a priest at the time, offered peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to those in need gathered near his East Nashville church.
Today, nearly 200 congregations representing many faith traditions engage in this ministry, providing overnight shelter and hospitality, inspired by God’s love.
The concept has become a model for programs in 36 other cities, from Calgary, Canada, to Charlotte, North Carolina.
Saturday Suppers occur every 3rd Saturday of the month during the entire year. Our neighbors are invited to Woodland for a free, hot meal, and also have access to our clothes closet.
