Trinity Presbyterian Church
Room in the Inn offers shelter, hospitality, meals, and a safe place to sleep for our neighbors experiencing homelessness. Please consider volunteering with Room in the Inn in one or many of the needs we have. See below for a description of each volunteer need. Any way that you can volunteer offers great support for Room in the Inn, together we are able to make this wonderful ministry possible. Thank you!
Transportation: Have a car? Have a license? Help drive our guests to and from Uptown and Trinity. Providing transportation brings our guests from the Urban Ministry Center uptown to Trinity (on Wednesday afternoon- arrive at UMC @ 4:45p, finish around 6p) and from Trinity to the Transportation Center (on Thursday morning - arrive at Trinity at 5:45a, finish after dropping guests at Transportation Center uptown).
Overnight Hosts: Join with a co-host to spend the night with our guests, beginning with dinner and ending with breakfast the next day. Enjoy a movie, game of cards, or a conversation before bed. (Arrive at Trinity between 5:30p-7:30p and head home or to work around 6a)
Breakfast: Please sign up if you are interested in helping provide our guests breakfast. There are many tasks included in this and Nancy Williams will be in touch with you about more information! This sign up is to show your interest in helping any time!!
Hospitality Host: Join in fellowship and conversation with RITI guests around the Dinner table. This volunteer option includes a number of opportunities including setting up beds and setting tables, serving dinner and clean up, and setting up the tables for the next morning. (Arrive at Trinity by 5:30pm and leave around 7:30pm)
Dessert Provider: Provide dessert for 24 people (some nut-free), drop off at Trinity anytime by 6pm on Wednesday or bring with you when you come to serve as a Dinner Host!
Lunch Provider: Provide 12 bagged lunches for our guests to bring with them when they depart Trinity. Drop off lunch on the Wednesday afternoon/evening.
Laundry: Help us to get ready for our next night of hosting by doing the laundry! We need two volunteers to help us by washing the towels and sheets from Wednesday night so our next set up guests have clean linens. Helpers will pick up the laundry anytime on the Thursday following Room In the Inn and bring home to wash then bring linens back to Trinity by the following Wednesday. Sign up to wash towels or sheets (or both!)
**Please note that we need to know how many people are signed up for each activity, if you are signing up for yourself and others, please use the tab on the sign up to indicate how many people will be joining you. This helps us to plan properly. THANK YOU!**
