Room at The Inn
Room at the Inn is a community program to fight homelessness in Saint Louis. It's goal is to provide a hand up to get people back into homes and jobs, to make their own way. Facilitating this is education, training, and networking. Room at the Inn helps up to 20 clients a day at the Day site in Bridgeton. They receive job training, suitable work clothing, child care assistance, and a place to live while they get on their feet.
Synogogues and Churches in the Saint Louis area take these people into their houses of worship each evening. The night sites provide transport, an evening meal, and fellowship to support the clients. Temple Emanuel has committed to serve as one of the night sites on the Fourth Tuesday of each month.
We had a heartening outpouring of help from many volunteers. If you would like to volunteer, have baby care items (pack n play) or linens (twin size), we would appreciate your help. Donations to help with the cost of food and gas would also be appreciated! Most importantly if you have ideas to improve our Room at the Inn nights, or have other action oriented Social Action ideas, please share them with us.
