Our New Home

Collins Chapel

Thanks to the partners listed below and the help of our faithful supporters, Spring 2021 brings a new chapter for Room in the Inn – Memphis as we finally have a place to call home at 409 Ayers Street.

Once one of the few places in Memphis that offered healthcare to African Americans and space for Black doctors and nurses to practice, the historic Collins Chapel Hospital campus now lives on as a place of hope, healing, and holy hospitality as the home of Room in the Inn.

We are thankful for the legacy of Collins Chapel Connectional Hospital and the CME Church. Take a few moments to experience this rich history through this video. Our commitment is to always celebrate and be faithful to the rich and beautiful history of service to those who are in need of hope and healing. We are blessed by our relationship with the CME Church.
