Teach your children and grandchildren about the importance of giving back from an early age with our Impact Club. This young donor’s group is geared toward children between the ages of 3 and 11. The Impact Club meets quarterly on Thursday evenings. During the meetings, children will enjoy light refreshments and participate in a give back activity. Membership in the club is free.

Some donors prefer to give smaller monthly donations over a longer period of time, rather than a single lump sum. This can be easier on your personal budgeting, but still makes a big impact for us. When you make a monthly donation to Chattanooga Room in the Inn, you are committing to being there for women and children in life’s toughest moments. A donation of any amount makes a difference. To make a monthly donation, select the monthly giving box on the donate page.

Monthly gifts make a big impact for us. Here are some examples:

$25 a month allows us to purchase needed personal care items for women and children.
$50 a month allows us to provide a welcome meal or extra groceries for a family moving into the shelter.
$100 a month provides mental health counseling sessions to women and children working through trauma.
