Transitional & Permanent Housing
Housing is our goal for everyone experiencing homelessness. Our support coordinators and recovery staff work in partnership with other agencies to help people on their journey from homelessness into both transitional and permanent housing.
Room In The Inn offers transitional residency programs, through our Guest House, for veterans and individuals seeking recovery. Our staff works with other agencies around Nashville to provide on-going support that focuses on employment, education, sobriety, mental health, and permanent housing. Participants in our transitional programs are provided workforce development opportunities as interns in different programs around our campus, including our Meal Program, Clancey’s Café, and the Winter Shelter Program. We intend for each of these services to offer participants a sense of stability that will allow for a smooth transition into permanent housing.
*This project is funded under the Grant Contract with the State of Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
We encourage participants to meet with our support coordinators, who connect individuals to resources for housing. Participants can schedule one-on-one meetings or attend biweekly housing readiness classes that prepare them to transition successfully from homelessness into housing. On average, 2-3 people obtain housing through appointments with our support coordinators each week.
In addition to these services, our downtown campus includes 38 efficiency apartments and ongoing case management for residents. This program allows us to offer an uninterrupted on-site path from the streets to permanent supportive housing, thus directly connecting emergency services with long-term solutions. Welcome Home Baskets provide basic household supplies for these individuals. Finally, we invite all former participants who move into housing to participate in weekly community dinners and aftercare sessions, which are led by Room In The Inn staff.
