Room in the Inn, our winter shelter program for the homeless, is moving into its final two months and there is a critical need for more men to serve as overnight hosts. Men are needed on the following dates: February 17 and March 3, 24, and 31. If you can help, call or text
Our Room in the Inn guests, who come to Belmont UMC’s Community Center each Friday evening during the cold winter months, are given access to a hot shower and a variety of soaps, shampoos, and other toiletries donated by church members. While the men eat a homecooked dinner and prepare for bed, a Belmonter takes their clothes to a local laundromat to wash and dry them. Before the men leave the next morning, they receive new underwear and socks, which are provided by church members. These simple comforts are transformative to men who otherwise would be sleeping on a dark, cold street.
