Come join the fun with Room At The Inn’s First Annual “HOME RUN,”  Marquette’s very own “Amazing Race!”  Sign up your team now for the opportunity to solve all the clues, “run the bases,” learn a little bit about homelessness, and get back to Marquette Mountain for all your prizes!!  The fun all happens on Wednesday, August 23rd, starting at 5:30 pm.  Teams will meet at the ski hill for instructions and then leave in waves to “run to first base.”  Meanwhile, there will be food and music happening at the ski hill where everyone awaits the teams’ return.
We are gearing up to host our 11th season of providing emergency shelter, and this event will, in part, celebrate our member churches and volunteers for all they have done to help Room At The Inn accomplish its mission for the past ten seasons.  We will celebrate, also, their continuing efforts to provide a safe, warm place to sleep for those in our community who have nowhere else to go.
The team entry fee is $500, and each team will have until August 21st to collect pledges toward their minimum entry fee.  We say “minimum,” because all teams have the opportunity to raise as much money as they can (and earn extra points for exceeding $500) to help our mission.  Click on the banner to access the registration form.  Call Doug Russell at 227-9171 for details.

Room at the Inn

Room at the Inn offers night time shelter, opening at 6 pm each evening and closing at 6 am. Dinner is provided each evening to shelter guests, between the hours of 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.


Warming Center

The Warming Center provides a warm and friendly location for shelter guests to gather before heading out for the day. The host church will have the use of the Warming Center to serve as a morning shelter location from 6 am–8 am.



The shelter is staffed each evening by community members who volunteer their time and service to the homeless in our community.



The Warming Center is in need of coffee, napkins and city garbage bags. As our guests transition to permanent housing, they are in need of apartment furniture and beds and mattresses. During the summer our guests are in need of sunscreen. Thank You!
