Room In The Inn welcomes volunteers in every area of our community life. They serve in many roles, according to their gifts and talents and our needs. More than 7,000 people volunteer in our partner congregations during the winter months. In addition, roughly 400 people visit our downtown campus each month to share their time.

How Do I Volunteer?

If you are interested in helping with hosting participants through our Winter Shelter program, contact your congregation to see if it is one of our nearly 200 partners. Each congregation coordinates its own volunteers and hospitality.

If you are interested in volunteering at our downtown Campus, please contact for more information.

Volunteer Orientations

Individuals interested in volunteering are required to attend a 45 minute volunteer orientation session. Please contact to inquire on upcoming dates for orientation.
