Room in the Inn

In November 2022, Calvary will begin providing Emergency Winter Shelter for the NINTH season through Room in the Inn – Memphis on FRIDAY nights. Our guests will register for the program at the First United Methodist Church at 204 N Second Street. We will pick our guests up at 5:30 p.m., have dinner around 6 p.m., and spend time with our guests before they settle in for a comfortable, safe night of sleep at Calvary’s new WELCOME INN. In the morning, our guests will have breakfast and depart by 7 am.  We will host a maximum of 15 guests.


We need volunteers to make beds, provide and/or serve dinner, wash linens, and clean up in the morning. For those who are willing, we also will need to have overnight shepherds to sleep at Calvary’s Welcome Inn. Staying overnight is a wonderful opportunity to spend quality time listening to our guests and offering support and encouragement.  We cannot offer this life-saving ministry without overnight shepherds.


Please join us in making God’s love visible in downtown Memphis by helping us host our unsheltered and vulnerable guests in the RITI – Memphis Congregational Winter Shelter program. If you have any questions, please contact Betty Jo Dulaney at bettyjodulaney@gmail.com or Allison Linnevers at allison.linnevers71@gmail.com
