Christ Rooms are a series of rooms in private homes which are available for short-term hospitality for people in need. Guests are welcomed as Christ – as people created in the image of God, as people with wisdom and gifts to share, as people who are on a journey toward wholeness.
Hosts open a room in their home to a guest for a determined period of time. Singles, couples, and families of all income levels can serve as hosts. Hosts receive support in the form of relationships, resources, and times of gathering.
Support households assist hosts by providing regular times of listening and conversation, and by offering practical assistance in the form of meals or transportation. Christian hospitality happens in the context of community. Support households build community with hosts.
Guests agree to navigate life within the host home with respect and open communication. Guests select an advocate to accompany them during their time in the hospitality network. Advocates may be pastors, social workers, c0-workers, friends, elders, or other persons respected by the guest.
Casa Alma serves as a threshold – a place where guests, advocates, hosts, and supports can meet and begin to form relationships. We also offer resources, support, and monthly gatherings to all involved.
