Inn From the Cold 


The Inn began out of a community concern for the growing number of people facing homelessness during the bitterly cold winter of 1996/97. Volunteers from several local churches met to discuss how they could help. 

Today, we support families through our prevention and diversion program, temporary emergency shelter and supportive housing programs with the help of over 2,700 committed volunteers.
