Everyone doing their part makes the shelter an incredible place of hope and healing!
Overnight Bed Stays
Serving those in our community experiencing homelessness with love, dignity & hospitality since 2019.
Grace Inn Shelter is located at 315 Church Street and is a 21-bed emergency shelter for adults in Belleville and surrounding areas, with a special focus on dignity, community and mentorship.
Every night in our city there are people with nowhere to go. Some sleep on park benches, a tent in the woods or a strangers couch. Others stay up all night in 24 hour coffee shops. But since Grace Inn opened it’s doors, this has changed.
Homelessness is, among other things, a series of losses. A loss of a home of course, but often also, a loss of relationships, a loss of choices, a loss of safety, a loss of hope.
Grace Inn works to restore dignity to the difficult experience of homelessness, helping people to feel safe, valued, and empowered.
What does dignity look like in a homeless shelter? For starters, we provide semi-private bedrooms, instead of a gymnasium filled with cots; lockers, so that people can sleep well, knowing that their belongings are safe; access to shower and laundry facilities for personal use, as well as opportunities for mentorship and community. We are committed to meeting the emergency needs of as many as possible, and giving them the help they need, making homelessness a part of their past and not their future.
