Giving Hope to the Hopeless

Have you ever felt hopeless and invisible?

Have you ever felt hopeless and invisible?


Many of the over 260+ homeless people in the Shoals feel this way on a daily basis.  They believe that they don't matter and that no one cares.  Room in the Inn strives to change that.  We work to ensure that no matter what the situation or struggle, that everyone deserves love and kindness and to know that they matter.


For the cost of one meal out, a month’s worth of coffee orders or the monthly cost of your Netflix subscription, you can change the lives of our homeless who are struggling to survive each night.


They are searching for anywhere they can find to lay their head - sleeping on sidewalks, in cars, under bridges, and in abandoned homes with no heat.  


Your recurring support of Room in the Inn not only provides food and shelter to the homeless during the winter months, but it allows us to make the once "invisible"visible; to provide love and kindness to people who feel rejected by society.  It connects our community by bringing countless volunteers together who strive to make a difference in the lives of those who lack the basics - including kindness and dignity.  


Since 2015, Room in the Inn has provided food, shelter and love during the coldest months of the year to anyone in need.  We have served over 530 homeless guests (89% of who are from Lauderdale and Colbert County) all with the local financial support of our community.  Your support allows us to continue that mission and to look for additional ways we can provide a hand up, not a hand out.  It will help us create additional resources to help the neediest in the Shoals. We know that we can't fix homelessness; and we don't try.  But what we can do is to offer hope, educate our community about this issue and make sure that no one freezes to death.


Room in the Inn Shoals is a locally operated 501c3, non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. We believe in full financial transparency and are managed through a local Board of Directors, with regular financial review and a yearly audit. We bank with a locally owned and operated bank because we believe in supporting our community as they support us.  We do not receive any local, state or federal funding because Room in the Inn Shoals is committed to serving anyone in need according to our personal mission and beliefs without having our policies dictated by federal guidelines.  100% of every dollar raised goes right back into the operation of our program. For more information about how our program works, please visit our website.


Please consider supporting us on a monthly basis! Every single dollar counts - no matter how small. Help us make the invisible, visible and spread our message of reminding all that EVERYONE MATTERS.
