Room in the Inn Shoals was founded in 2015 by two local mothers, Krista Manchester and Beth Howard. While walking the streets of Florence, Krista and Beth met people sleeping in parks, on benches and behind trash cans in the cold winter months.

Knowing they were in a position to help, Krista and Beth gathered friends and family to create Room In the Inn Shoals. That winter, they housed and fed 57 people with open arms and warm hearts.

Five years later, Beth and Krista created a partner organization: Room at the Table of The Shoals. The organization provides hot meals to people in need, seven days a week, year-round. At Room at the Table of The Shoals, anyone can stop by to share a meal with those in attendance, creating a true sense of community.
