Charlie Strobel named to Larkspur Board

Welcome Charlie Strobel!

Father Charles “Charlie” Strobel,  joins the Larkspur Conservation Board of directors.

Charlie is excited to bring his passion and expertise to Larkspur Conservation and looks forward to upholding the organization’s mission and creating Tennessee’s first conservation burial ground; Larkspur Conservation at Taylor Hollow.

Charlie is best known as the founder of Room In The Inn.  It all began in the winter of 1985, when he opened the doors of his parish to individuals seeking sanctuary in the church parking lot. This simple act of kindness marked the beginning of Room In The Inn. In December 1986, four congregations committed to sheltering people experiencing homeless through March 1987. By the end of that winter, 31 congregations had joined. Now, Room In The Inn has nearly 200 congregations from a wide variety of traditions and over 7,000 volunteers who shelter almost 1,500 men and women from November 1 through March 31 each season.

Larkspur Conservation is very excited to welcome Charlie to the board.  His generosity for humankind is unparalleled in our community and he is a welcomed addition which will strengthen our organization.
