Room At The Inn of the Triad, Inc. is an unique, comprehensive program helping homeless, single, pregnant women (with or without previous children), not only during their pregnancies but also after the birth of their babies. By providing shelter, food, clothing, case management, in-house daycare, transportation, life skills education and counseling in a structured environment, we help these families have new lives of healthy, hope-filled self sufficiency.
In order to bring these vital programs and services to the Triad, Room At The Inn of the Triad was incorporated in June of 1999.
In May of 2001, the renovations on the original Sternberger Mansion located in the Aycock Historical District were completed and the Mary Corinne Nussbaum Home for single mothers was opened. The only licensed maternity home that accepts pregnant women of all ages in Guilford County, the facility is licensed to accommodate six pregnant women and their children.
Since then, the agency has grown and other programs have been added to meet the needs of our clients. These include: The Dixon Self Sufficiency Program (2001); our Child Development Program (2002); our Maternal, Infant and Child Health Care Program (2004); Amy’s House (2004); The Back Yard Ministry Home in Kernersville, North Carolina (2005); and the Samaritan House in Eden, NC (2008).
Our outreach expanded in late 2005 to include programs and support for pregnant women in the Lowcountry area of South Carolina. In 2006, the corporate name was changed to Room At The Inn of the Carolinas to include both maternity homes and all programs in North and South Carolina. The McGivney Maternity Home located in Bluffton, SC was opened in June 2007, licensed by SC department of Social Services to provide residential care to homeless pregnant and parenting teens. In January of 2013 we closed our maternity home program in Bluffton SC. We continue to offer services to the women and children who graduated from this program through our Aftercare program. These services include: case management/counseling; referrals to community resources; and financial/material assistance for up to five years after the birth of their babies. Quarterly peer support group meetings are conducted in the geographical areas served by our programs to allow for clients and staff to meet for fellowship and mutual sharing.
With an all-volunteer Board of Trustees, Room At The Inn of the Carolinas is a nonprofit corporation with a 501(c)3 status with the IRS. In the Spring of 2010, we were accredited by the Council on Accreditation. We are proud to receive this national recognition for our implementation of best practices throughout our organization.
