Since 1996, the Urban Ministry Center has partnered with colleges and congregations of many faiths to open their facilities to provide shelter and food for homeless people during the winter months. Each site offers a warm and safe place to sleep, serves three meals (dinner, breakfast and a brown bag lunch) and then returns guests the following morning to uptown Charlotte.
The program is a unique way for people of faith to become directly involved with people who are homeless. The simple goal is to keep homeless people from freezing on cold winter nights. A greater goal is to provide a more personal relationship to homeless people, at least for a night, and a deeper understanding of the depth and complexity of the issue.

Since we moved into our permanent building, we are excited to be able to offer Room in the Inn here at Light of Christ. We can always use volunteers to help us with care for our homeless neighbors. We provide a warm and safe place to sleep, three meals (dinner, breakfast and a brown bag lunch), hospitality and prayer during the cold winter months.
