Jefferson City Room at the Inn (JCRATI)

Is There Room at the Inn? 

Yes! During these cold winter months, there is room for 12 adults at Jefferson City Room at the inn (JCRATI)!  This volunteer-staffed coalition of community members are providing a warm and safe overnight shelter for men and women when weather conditions reach life-threatening levels.

Located on the upper level of the Catholic Charities building at 1015 Edmonds St., JCRATI will operate daily from 7 p.m. – 7 a.m. beginning January 1, 2023. They will remain open through the first part of March.

FBC is grateful to be a part of this community initiative. We have provided funds to support the work but volunteers the most important way we can contribute to supporting our unhoused neighbors.

  • DRIVERS. FBC has committed to provide transportation to or from the shelter and Missouri River Regional Library during morning and evening shifts for three different weeks. Some van drivers have already agreed to serve, but additional drivers are needed. To view available openings and to sign up, click here.
