What is Room at the Inn?
Room at the Inn is a emergency night shelter for adults. Room at the
Inn is run by an interfaith coalition of churches sharing the mission to
provide support and shelter for the homeless in the Marquette area.
Room at the Inn is a rotating shelter, moving weekly to one of the
twelve different hosting churches. The shelter is run and staffed by
volunteers and funded by contributions from the community. The
underlying goal of Room at the Inn is to provide an opportunity for
guests to focus on life transitions without the worry of finding food
and shelter. Room at the Inn serves Marquette area residents but will
consider referrals from neighboring social service agencies on a case to
case basis. Prior approval from the shelter director is needed for non
area guests before admission.
How can I get in involved?
New volunteer training will be offered on the third Thursday of each month (unless it falls on a holiday), from 6-8 p.m. at the Warming Center, located at 447 W. Washington Street. All new volunteers are required to attend this training prior to volunteering for Room at the Inn.
