Regional Report - Charlotte

ROOM IN THE INN FOR CHARLOTTE'S HOMELESS - In the heart of Charlotte’s business and cultural hub known as “Uptown” you will find St. Peter’s Catholic Church. In concert with over 100 other congregations in the greater Charlotte area, St. Peter’s partners with the Urban Ministry Center to provide overnight accommodations for more than 1,500 homeless people during the four cold-weather months. Initiated under the leadership of the late Harry Grim, our first Hospitaller, and carried on by Dr. Don Joyce, Jerry Schmitt, and now Joe Tronco, this Room In The Inn program has become a core commitment of the Charlotte Region for the past fifteen years.
