Homelessness is a very serious problem in Nashville. A study conducted at Vanderbilt University has shown the population of individuals living without shelter in the city has grown significantly in recent years. The costs associated with homelessness have swelled to as much as $50,000 per year for each individual living on the street.
Room In The Inn was founded in 1986 as a way for church congregations to make a difference in the lives of Nashville’s homeless community by providing food and shelter to those without homes on frigid winter nights. Since that time, the organization has provided places to eat and sleep for as many as 30,000 individuals.
Despite these accomplishments, the organization says they still have to turn down as many as 100 homeless people on many nights due to a lack of facilities and supplies.
The good news is that you can help Room In The Inn provide for the homeless with one click. For each new and unique “like” we get on our Facebook page, we will donate $1 to this wonderful organization. Chip in and give with a click today!
