What is Room at the Inn?

Room at the Inn is a emergency night shelter for adults.  Room at the Inn is run by an interfaith coalition of churches sharing the mission to provide support and shelter for the homeless in the Marquette area. Room at the Inn is a rotating shelter, moving weekly to one of the twelve different hosting  churches.  The shelter is run and staffed by volunteers and funded by contributions from the community. The underlying goal of Room at the Inn is to provide an opportunity for guests to focus on life transitions without the worry of finding food and shelter.  Room at the Inn serves Marquette area residents but will consider referrals from neighboring social service agencies on a case to case basis.  Prior approval from the shelter director is needed for non area guests before admission.                                                              

How can I get in involved?

New volunteer training will be offered on the third Thursday of each month (unless it falls on a holiday), from 6-8 p.m. at the Warming Center, located at 447 W. Washington Street. All new volunteers are required to attend this training prior to volunteering for Room at the Inn.
