LOCAL CHURCH SUPPORTING HOMELESS NEIGHBORS AND HAITIAN FAMILIES WITH
ANNUAL NATIVITIES EVENT
Number of Homes Built in Haiti will reach 31 in 2022
More than $325,000 raised. Twenty-nine homes built in Haiti. Dozens of local families living in safe housing. As it marks the Fifteenth Annual No Room at the Inn exhibit, Catholic Church of the Redeemer is preparing to continue its mission to provide housing for those in need. Since December 2008, the nativities exhibit has been a celebration of the true meaning of Christmas and a successful fundraiser.
“The exhibit includes hundreds of nativities from around the world and provides a powerful and prayerful way to begin the Advent season,” said Rev. James Cowles, pastor of Church of the Redeemer.
The No Room weekend starts with a Gala Preview on Friday, December 2 from 7 to 10 pm. Adults are invited to an evening of food, beverages, live and silent auctions, and music.

The children’s room returns in 2022, with activities that include crafts and taking part in a live nativity. In addition, the online auction, which premiered in 2020, returns to allow folks to participate remotely. The online auction goes live on “Black Friday,” November 25.
The $325,000 raised in the past 14 years has gone to provide modest homes in Haiti and support the local work of Ashland Supportive Housing, Hanover Safe Place, Safe Harbor, MCEF, CARITAS, and My Path Forward.
Proceeds from this year’s No Room at the Inn will build two houses in Haiti and support Mechanicsville Churches Emergency Functions (MCEF) which provides emergency rent to prevent eviction in Hanover and My Path Forward which provides young people aging out of Virginia’s foster care system with a powerful combination of housing and crucial support services.
