MINISTRY SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK
ROOM IN THE INN - Permanently cancelled
Please note, this ministry no longer exists; however, it has evolved into something new. Room In The Inn was a shelter for up to twelve women from the Asheville area that were recovering from addiction and/or abusive situations. Different faith communities provided this service so that every week during the year, a shelter was held somewhere in the city on a rotating basis. St. Eugene's and Asbury United Methodist Church partnered for more than 20 years covering one week for 3-4 times a year. Since the pandemic, churches have not been hosting. However, Homeward Bound has purchased a motel on Tunnel Road and is turning it into rooms or apartments for homeless. Asbury United Methodist Church has donated all the inventory of blankets, pillows, etc. to Homeward Bound. If anyone is interested in helping with the homeless they are encouraged to contact Homeward Bound (https://homewardboundwnc.org; 828-258-1695). Meals are always welcomed.
