Room In The Inn

Coordinator: Janie Jordan

Room In The Inn (RITI) was initiated in 2019 in Richmond and supplied housing for the homeless during the coldest months, December 2019-March 2020. Several of our church members volunteered during this time and developed friendships with our “guests”.

During the past six months, with the coronavirus pandemic, our parish has been feeding homeless and hungry people every week. Many churches and volunteers have participated so that lunches could be served seven days a week. This has been done in the United Methodist Church back parking lot with masks, gloves, and social distancing. It has been a real blessing for everyone involved.

The RITI committee is beginning to plan for the cold weather again but the coronavirus is complicating the plans. However, the committee and the volunteers are committed to finding a solution. Our parish will continue serving food to those in need!

Mother Carol has secured a $4,000 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation Rapid Response grant award in conjunction with the Public Theology and Racial Justice Collaborative of the Vanderbvilt Divinity School to support our efforts.  

Thank you to all those who have been involved in any way. Let’s love all of our neighbors!
