What We Do

In 2003, Welcome Inn Day Center began offering a safe, warm place for our least fortunate neighbors to get a warm meal and a change of clothes. Since then, Welcome Inn has evolved to include a comprehensive scope of services geared towards helping the chronically-homeless reclaim their health and wholeness of life.

Averaging 65 people each day, December-March, Welcome Inn works diligently to ameliorate the struggles and suffering of our community's most marginalized citizenry via collaborative partnerships with area service-providers at a safe, comfortable and centralized location.

Our services include:

Basic Needs
Food, daily shelter, clothes, showers, laundry, computer and telephone access

Health and wholeness
On-site nurses and educational instruction, 12-step based recovery programs, yoga, mentoring services

Case Work
Welcome Inn employs a Social Worker skilled at helping our guests access the services needed to help them not only survive but succeed.  


“We cannot do everything and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. This enables us to do something and do it very well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for God’s grace to enter and do the rest.” Archbishop O. Romero
