Knox Area Rescue Ministries City Nights

KARM’s Outreach efforts reach almost 200 people each week who choose to live on the streets of Knoxville.

City Nights

City Nights is a time of worship, communion and community on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9 p.m. to midnight. During City Nights, our NaNew’s Courtyard is open to everyone, offering a hot cup of coffee and food served up with unconditional grace and love.

NaNew’s Courtyard

NaNew’s Courtyard, named after someone with special ties to KARM, was opened to provide a safe outdoor space for KARM guests when they weren’t inside the KARM facilities. The courtyard provides water, restrooms, phone chargers, bag storage and permanent shaded seating areas. NaNew’s Courtyard has become a safe outdoor extension of KARM for those on the street.

KARM staff and volunteers engage with those in need and develop strong relationships that create hope and a way out of the cycle of poverty and homelessness.
