Amy's House and the Back Yard Ministry

Amy Elizabeth Disney House
Back Yard Ministry Home

Remodelers Council


Amy's House in Greensboro and the Back Yard Ministry House in Kernersville are both part of Room At The Inn's Subsidized Housing Program for single mothers who have graduated from the Mary C. Nussbaum Maternity Home program and who are enrolled full time in educational and/or vocational programs.

Amy’s House and The Back Yard Ministry House provide:

  • Shelter
  • Day Care
  • Financial and Material Support

Amy's House was named for Amy Elizabeth Disney, Amy’s House was a project of the Greater Greensboro Builders’ Association’s Remodeler’s Council. Volunteers worked for over a year raising funds and donating materials and labor in renovating the facility. For their work, the Remodelors Council received the association’s local, state and national service awards.

The Back Yard Ministry was purchased and renovated by the members of the Cherry Street United Methodist Church. The Backyard Ministry was made available to Room At The Inn in September 2005. The downstairs apartment is home to mothers and children, while the upstairs apartment now houses the maintenance/archive office of Room At The Inn.

Through the generous donation of Francis and Patty Disney and the greater Greensboro Builders’ Association and collaborations with local churches, Room at the Inn is able to offer Supported Community Living Services for maternity home program graduates who are attending college full-time. Funds raised through the Annual Amy Elizabeth Disney Memorial Golf Tournament also support the college program.
