What a phenomenal place filled with the most giving and caring people. The amount of effort that they put into helping others is astonishing. The INN is our favorite place to donate to because it's always appreciated and put to good use.

Have served at the INN numerous times through my organizations and as a personal commitment. People, organization, and courteous service with dignity to the guests we serve is warm and empathetic. I loved serving here so much that I wanted to get more INNvolved so I am now, after having gone through training, the public speaker for the INN who can help raise awareness on the challenges of hunger and homelessness. I couldn't be more content and happier.

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.
Remarkable organization!!!

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!

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.

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!

Interfaith Nutrition Network is an awesome place. The love and respect they show each of their clients is heartwarming. They help others by providing food, but they don't stop there. In some cases they provide housing. They certain are helping hands to those in needs.

The INN is an amazing place to be. There are so many people that are fed on a regular basis. I was so impressed with the people that volunteer there also. So many people have received food, clothing and have their essential needs met. My school is working on completing a towel drive because so many people need to have the ability to take showers. This place is great. Many of the people have the opportunity to shower, receive clean clothes and their needs met. One day, there will be no hungry day for those that walk through the doors of the INN.

Several years ago I had the opportunity to have a guided tour of the Mary Brennan INN. I was so impressed with what they do for and how they treat their guests. I started collecting donations of food, towels, toiletries, clothes, shoes and books from my friends, then once a month I would drop them off. Also, my church makes sandwiches and hot meals to donate to their lunch program. It's the best feeling in the world to know I can make a difference in a neighbor's life. And YOU can too!
