Room at the Inn's mission is to provide a safe and secure emergency home for women during the winter months and to provide year-round case management to help women stabilize their lives.
Their goal is to ensure that guests and volunteers feel welcomed, valued, and respected in an atmosphere of personal responsibility and mutual support and to help guests and other women secure and retain permanent housing.
Their vision is to bring stability and safety to homeless women, recognizing that when the most vulnerable women feel safe, all women are safer.
Quote from participant:
“While serving dinner, we really connected with the guests, having conversations about the day, guests getting and searching for jobs, and more. By the end we had gotten to talk to a few guests as well as the staff a lot. When things like this happen, you really see the impact of personal connections and the concept of working with rather than doing to or for.”
