our story



We are here to empower people. We help our clients find solutions to their homelessness through education, referrals and case management. Room at the Inn was founded in 1993 and originally sponsored by the Sisters of Divine Providence. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency, incorporated in Missouri.


ROOM is supported by a network of approximately 1,500 annual volunteers. We partner with more than 50 interfaith, night-site congregations that represent 15 faith traditions and a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds. We collaborate with multiple outside agencies to make needed services available for our clients. ROOM serves as a catalyst to help our community help those who are homeless.
