Hundreds come out in support of Breakfast with the INN Crowd

Hundreds of guests listen as Sister Barbara McMullen, CDP, recites the opening prayer before the 2014 Breakfast with the INN Crowd Friday, April 11, at the St. Louis Renaissance Airport Hotel.

(BRIDGETON, Mo.) Room at the Inn’s sixth annual Breakfast with the INN Crowd, held Friday, April 11, was a resounding success, with more than 320 guests attending the event and showing their support for Room at the Inn’s work with the homeless in St. Louis area.

“With this year’s breakfast, we wanted to make a stand for our youngest clients-the children of Room at the Inn,” said Development Director Ana G. Schulz. “All of us at Room at the Inn were impressed and humbled with the show of support from this year’s gala.”

The breakfast, held at the St. Louis Renaissance Airport Hotel, featured several speakers on the subject of homelessness, including Karen Wallensak, Executive Director of Catholic Charities Community Services, who gave a sobering description of homelessness in the area.

“Children are among what the National Center on Family Homelessness calls ‘America’s Youngest Outcast,'” Wallensak said during her presentation. “The average age of a homeless child is six years old.”

Wallensak highlighted the work that shelters like Room at the Inn do every day to fight homelessness.

“When you step back and look at the amount of work that goes on in places like Room at the Inn, it’s almost miraculous what these shelters can accomplish,” she said.

But it is not a job that can be done alone.

“Room at the Inn’s mission is only possible thanks to the hundreds of people who stepped up to the plate Friday to help those who need it most,” said Program Director Valorie Ferlis. “To all of you who contributed in some way to the success of the event, we just want to thank you and tell you you have made a huge different in the life of many women, children and families.”
