We provide shelter, food, clothing, case management, in-house daycare, transportation, life skills education and counseling in a structured environment. We also help 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 was incorporated in June of 1999.

The Nussbaum Maternity Home opened in May of 2001. Renovations on the original Sternberger Mansion located in the Aycock Historical District were completed and the Mary Corinne Nussbaum Home for single pregnant mothers was opened.
