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

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.

City Nights Experience

CityNights Experience gives young people and adults a chance to learn about homelessness by serving the very people who have experienced it.

At CityNights Experience, you will participate in our ministry by serving the homeless alongside KARM staff and volunteers and offering hospitality (including food and gift bags) to guests… all in a single day from noon to midnight. For more information, click below.

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.
