Room In The Inn Shoals,…

There are many in the Shoals area that do not know about this organization. What they do is provide a warm bed for the area homeless during the winter months. Be sure to “like” them on facebook HERE to keep abreast of current situations, things they may need and events they may have to help support their cause.
-----------------------------------------------------------
This from their website,… Room in the Shoals,….
WE WILL BE OPEN NOVEMBER 1st AS A NIGHTLY EMERGENCY SHELTER. UNTIL THEN IF YOU HAVE EMERGENCY HOUSING NEEDS, PLEASE CALL THE SALVATION ARMY AT 256-764-4432 OR CALL 211 FROM ANY PHONE FOR ASSISTANCE.  WE WILL BE OPEN EVERY NIGHT BEGINNING NOVEMBER 1ST - MARCH 31ST.
Room in the Inn Shoals Inc. is an interfaith community-based partnership providing food and shelter to the homeless in the Shoals during the winter months.  We are currently made up of a partnership with 17 Shoals area congregations and organizations, with a 12 member Board of Directors. We provide nightly emergency shelter from November 1st thru March 31st as well as help support a weekly community meal. Room in the Inn Shoals does not and cannot fix homelessness. It does not fix the reasons people are homeless. But it does change people. It proves that people who are unfamiliar with the problems of homelessness can have an impact in helping those in need. By offering radical hospitality, congregations can get to know the people of their community. And all of a sudden, "those people" become real people. With names. And stories.  And the homeless find out that people in their community really do care and are living out their faith by serving those in need.

  2. It is a shame that this is even needed. I cannot imagine being outside in the wet and cold without heat and warmth.
