Room in the Inn

Room in the Inn 2021-2022

While we continue to deal with the inconveniences of our Covid-extended limbo, our unsheltered neighbors have been navigating a drastically reduced existence with so many nonprofit support agencies shut down or limited to “take out” services only. Thankfully, our longtime partner Roof Above has restarted its emergency winter shelter program known as Room In The Inn. As one of only a few faith partners willing and able to participate, First Presbyterian will be offering overnight lodging and hospitality to 8 guests one night a week beginning on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 through Tuesday, March 29, 2022.

We have made changes to insure that both guests and volunteers will stay safe and healthy this winter. Specifically, guests will be required to be vaccinated in order to participate. We ask that our volunteers be vaccinated as well. Masks will be worn in the van and church except while eating and sleeping. Only 8 guests will be spending the night one night a week on Tuesdays to allow for adequate spacing.

Please consider enlisting a friend or two (church member or not!) and signing up for one or two of the following roles.

How You Can Help:

1)  Overnight Hosts - This is the "heart" of our mission. It’s the chance to make a friend and walk alongside them for a night.  Arrive at the Church at 5:45 p.m. and check in with the nightly coordinator who will have everything set up. You will pick our guests up at the College Street campus of Roof Above in the church van.  Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m., followed by showers.  Our guests settle in after showers and lights are out at 10:00 p.m.  Our guests and our hosts will sleep in separate rooms.  After an early portable breakfast, you will offer the guests a ride back to the College Street campus in the church van.

2)  Prepare and Serve Dinner - This is a favorite activity especially for families, and the spots fill up quickly.  It is a wonderful opportunity to share a meal and fellowship with our guests.  You will be asked to provide dinner for approximately 12 people (8 guests, 2 overnight hosts and any meal prep volunteers) and have it ready to be served in the Frances Browne Dining Room at 6:30 p.m.  You are welcome to use the FPC Kitchen for preparation.  This is a two-person or family job in order to help with cost and labor.  With a smaller group to feed this winter, please consider preparing your favorite recipes along with a green salad and homemade desserts and make it a real family meal!

3)  Provide 8 bag lunches - We send our guests off in the morning with a hearty bag lunch to help them through the next day.  We need volunteers to provide lunches to be handed out very early Wednesday morning.  The lunches will need to be dropped off in the FPC Kitchen the day before on Tuesday afternoon.  Detailed instructions are provided.

4)  Provide Breakfast Food - This is easy but so important.  We always provide a variety of breakfast items for our guests before they head out for the day.  Detailed instructions are provided.
