How Can We Help You?

If you are in need of The INN’s services, we are here for you. The Mary Brennan INN soup kitchen and the Center for Transformative Change (CTC) offer a variety of services and distribute many different items (on a set schedule) to guests who are in need of help. Guests who are experiencing homelessness need a referral from the Department of Social Services to be placed in one of our emergency housing shelters. We can help you get started.
