Long Island NY is noted as one of the most affluent areas in the country, yet hunger and homelessness happen here too! The statistics are alarming- 1 out of 5 average individuals exist with simply too much month at the end of their money and the basics: food and shelter become options instead of the right they deserve to be,
The INN is a sanctuary of dignity, respect and love. For over 30 years it has operated a network of soup kitchens, food pantries, emergency and long term housing units with a no questions asked policy. Volunteers are trained to release their preconceptions and recognize that every guest who comes to the INN are individuals who are somebody to someone- and simply need guidance to help find their way back to a life of self worth.
Everyday in every way The INN is a place of solitude and conviction that change is possible when caring is sharing.
I have been volunteering with the INN for the past 8 years. It is always an inspiring and beautiful experience supporting the INN. I've witnessed an organization who is "family" to their every day clients and guests who visit daily the Mary Brennan INN soup kitchen. The dignity and respect shown to their guests is beautiful and inspiring to others. I look forward to retirement when I can be a full-time volunteer with the INN.

The INN is an amazing organization here on Long Island that feed, clothes and shelters the homeless and hungry. My family has been involved with the INN in numerous capacities, including all three of my children being on the INN's Youth Board. The Youth Board is comprised of high school students from all over Long Island that meet monthly during the school year and come up with fundraisers and projects to help those in need. The INN is run by the most wonderful and dedicated individuals you will ever find!
A wonderful organization committed to helping the Long Island community. they do fantastic work.
I've been volunteering for The INN for a year and I am impressed with the amount of work and energy that is exhibited with the staff. It is impressive the amount of work that is produced from such a small organization. Everyone is focused on the mission and strives to fulfill it in their respective roles.
Wonderful, caring, dedicated, and thoughtful. There aren't enough superlatives to accurately describe The folks at The INN and how hard they work.
The employees and volunteers at the INN are exceptional! They truly understand what their guests need and they handle it with such empathy and passion. Dedicated to providing a hot nutritional meal and showers, also having a stocked food pantry. They give back to the community in everyway possible providing excellent service to those in need. They have a great system in which they work with each guest to make sure they have a pleasant experience each and every time they come.
Very heartwarming, what a great facility!
The INN provides a nice warm environment for those in need of a hot meal. Everyone shows respect for one another at the INN. The facility provides clothing and household items. Great place for the community.
I can't praise "The Inn" enough. I've been a volunteer for several years. The people are wonderful to work with and so caring and dedicated to their cause. This organization definitely deserves a five star rating and more!
The INN does a WONDERFUL job helping those in need in the community. Doors open, no questions are asked and "guests" are given a nice hot meal, at least 3 courses, plus a desert and fruit...all prepared by volunteers on a daily basis, for up to ~ 450 people!
Furthermore, they offer clothing, some household items and a clean warm shower to those in need.
A terrific facility!
