JACKSON, Tenn. - As the temperature continues to drop, many of the homeless in the area are seeking an escape from the cold weather.

Emergency shelter program “Room in the Inn” is asking for more local churches to get involved with hosting homeless men in Jackson during the winter months.

The program is sponsored by Area Relief Ministries and gives men a chance to escape cold weather during the night.

ARM Executive Director Lisa Peoples said the organization can provide a place to sleep for up to 40 men each night if the organization has at least two church partners for that night.

If you would like to find out how your church can get involved call Area Relief Ministries at 731.423.9257.
