No Room in the Inn is based on the story of Mary and Joseph, forced to take refuge in a stable because there was nowhere else for them to stay. Each Christmas, churches and individuals from a number of denominations join together in this campaign to raise financial support to a housing provider that works to meet the needs of the homeless or those at risk in the Edmonton Metro Region. This year No Room in the Inn has chosen the Canadian Mental Health Association – Edmonton Region. For more than fifty years, CMHA-ER has worked to provide safe and secure housing for people living with mental illness. CMHA-ER currently owns or operates seven buildings comprising of 146 units that house 108 individuals and families. To provide these tenants better and more secure access, including the ability to connect with the Edmonton Police Service, CMHA-ER needs to update building entry systems. The estimated cost is $30,000. With your support, we can provide tenants with greater safety and security in their homes. Please share the attached brochure and/or poster widely.
