Room In The Inn 2019/2020 Season
For over 15 years Trinity has been partnering with Urban Ministry Center to be a host site for the Room In The Inn (RITI) program. Three Wednesdays a month from December through March, we will host 12 guests to spend the night. Each year, we rely on dedicated and caring Trinity volunteers to make RITI possible! There are 250 volunteer slots that need to be filled. Please consider signing up below so that Trinity can continue to provide this important ministry to our neighbors experiencing homelssness.
DRIVER: (Coordinator: Richard Williams) Can you help pick up Neighbors from Urban Ministry and take them to Trinity? Maybe you're an early bird and can instead provide the return trip the following morning. We need you as a DRIVER! Detailed instructions will be sent after sign up.
HOSPITALITY HOST: (Coordinator: Tricia Sistrunk, [email protected]) This volunteer option includes a number of opportunities including: making the beds for our guests; setting tables; serving dinner, sharing a meal with our neighbors; and cleaning up.
BREAKFAST CASSEROLE: (Coordinator: Nancy Williams, [email protected]) Is your Trinity group or your group of friends looking for a way to give back? Get together with your friends, pick a month, and volunteer to put together crockpot breakfast casserole for all three Wednesdays during that month. We will provide you with the ingredient list and the recipe. We need your help purchasing the ingredients and putting the casserole together each week (reimbursement available for the supplies).

Enjoy a movie or a game of cards before bed. Lights out at 10 p.m., rise to plug the coffee in at 5 a.m. and head home by 6a.m. Detailed instructions will be sent after sign up.
