Idlewild Room in the Inn

Room in the Inn Volunteer sign-ups

Thank you for considering volunteering with Room in the Inn at Idlewild.   

Room In The Inn is a hospitality oriented ministry at Idlewild for our unsheltered neighbors. During the months of November-April Idlewild will host women on the first and third Thursday of each month during the nights. We will transport our guests from First United Methodist Church downtown to Idlewild and provide dinner, a warm and safe place to sleep, and a quick breakfast with a snack to-go. The following morning we will transport them back downtown. There are various ways that you can help make this ministry a success! 

Please look over the volunteer opportunities below and help Idlewild make God's love visible in Memphis. Please fill in the "comments" section with the item(s) you plan to bring. If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact Amanda Ray at 901-490-6832.
