St. Ferdinand Parish is one of about 70 Congregations in the St Louis area that help by providing a place to sleep, food and fellowship. Room at the Inn is a emergency shelter to homeless families and single women. The Sisters of Divine Providence provide emergency shelter and a stabilizing support system to women and families in St Louis County. We provide them dinner on Friday night, a place to sleep and breakfast on Saturday morning. We pick them up at Providence Center, off of McKelvey on the fourth Friday of each month and return them on Saturday morning. We have about 20 parishioners that help transport our guests, give them food, fellowship and a place to sleep.
If you would like to help us contact Carolyn Freesmeier at 703-6870.
