At least half of Room In The Inn’s participants are temporarily or “first time” homeless. Generally, they are working poor who have suffered setbacks like job loss, illness, loss of transportation and divorce. The other fifty percent of our participants are chronically homeless. They often face one or more serious issues, including mental illness, addiction and physical disabilities. Many of Room In The Inn’s participants are military veterans. In the United States, nearly one-third of homeless adults are veterans.
Christ Community Church will host 15 homeless men the first and third Sunday each month from November through March. There are many things we provide for the men—a wonderful meal, a hot shower, haircuts, laundry service, a clean bed, a hearty breakfast, a sack lunch, but the most important thing we give them is love.
At Christ Community, our Room In The Inn program is truly a family affair. It is a wonderful time to fellowship with folks from our CCC family as we serve others.
