Room in the Inn resumes at Belmont UMC!

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED! Click here to sign up.

Room in the Inn (RITI) will resume at Belmont UMC in November. Once again, we will welcome 12 homeless guests on Friday nights during the colder months, providing a warm and safe place to rest. Every effort is being made to promote the safety of all involved. Nashville actually has a high Covid vaccine rate among the homeless, and our guests will all be vaccinated.

There will be some changes in our process. We will start with four nights this year: November 5, 19, December 3 and 17. We hope to resume weekly RITI in January 2022. Our hospitality includes serving a hot dinner, use of shower facilities, offering personal laundry, and sack lunches for guests to take with them.

There are many ways to serve, either being present at the church with guests or behind the scenes. We need van drivers, overnight hosts, folks to bring dinner and sack lunches, set up/clean up crews, and laundry volunteers.  If you can help, please contact Susan Utley.

Room In The Inn at Belmont United Methodist Church

Belmont UMC is one of several hundred churches in the Nashville area that provides a safe, warm place for homeless persons to stay overnight one night each week from November through March and receive three meals (dinner, breakfast, and a sack lunch). This ministry is provided in association with the Room In The Inn program developed and conducted by the Campus for Human Development, a non-profit organization founded by Father Charles Strobel.

RITI at Belmont is conducted under the guidance of the Homeless Ministries Team. This team establishes the guidelines and organizes and secures the basic supplies needed for the ministry.
