Good Job Brianne Thanks To All The Veterans

Yay! One of our residents found permanent housing and is moving out this week! While we have many items to get her new place setup, she could really use a couch or recliner and a set of queen sheets with pillowcases. If you have these items and would like to donate them, please message us on here or email Brianne at blalor@chattanoogaroomintheinn.com to coordinate.

Thank you!
