Guest House & Recuperative Care
Room In The Inn’s Guest House is often a first step towards recovery. Created in 1991 at the request of Nashville’s judges, our Guest House provides an alternative to jail for public intoxication. In addition, we coordinate with hospitals and other care providers to provide recuperative care, which includes respite for medically fragile homeless individuals recovering from recent hospitalization, illness, or injury.
For more information on referrals to the Guest House, please download the "Recuperative Care Referral Form.

An alternative to jail for the publicly intoxicated
