November is Homeless Awareness Month


Room At The Inn is host to 15-18 homeless guests every night.  Over 85% of our guests are from Marquette and Alger Counties.  The majority of our other guests are from the Upper Peninsula.  They need our help, and we are honored to provide them shelter and food.     Our volunteers coordinate all shelter activities, from checking everyone into the shelter to serving dinner every night to watching over our guests and keeping them safe.  We can do all this because citizens and businesses in our local communities decided ten years ago that this was the right thing to do and have supported us from the beginning.  As long as the need exists, Room At The Inn will be open and ready to help those in need.

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!
