Fighting Homelessness, Creating Hopefulness
Together we can do so much.

Our Mission

To serve, with love, dignity and care, the citizens of the Shoals area who are struggling with

homelessness and food insecurity.

We do this in partnership with volunteers from our community to ensure that

anyone in need has food and shelter.

We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and care and we strive to show this

day after day with intentional service, love and kindness.

We are one organization with two missions powered by the love and care of our community.

Room in the Inn Shoals is a winter shelter program.

We are open for shelter from November through March.

From April through October, Room in the Inn provides food and supplies for anyone in need.

*Email us at for the distribution schedule as it varies from week to week.


Our Shelter program is a unique kind of homeless shelter that operates each year from

November through March. We partner with a variety of local churches from Lauderdale and Colbert Counties,

as well as hundreds of individual volunteers, to provide these services every winter. 

Homelessness is a hard and difficult issue. We cannot solve homelessness; nor do we try.

But what we can do is to help make the invisible, visible

and let people know that regardless of their circumstances and struggles, they still matter.

More information about our program and how we work can be found here.
