Providing more than 145,991 safe nights of rest in 2011 alone, MUST is a place to begin to recover from financial disaster, drug and/or alcohol addiction, discouragement or job loss.
Between the Emergency Shelter, Transitional Housing and Supportive Housing, MUST serves as a place of refuge for many in our community.
The Elizabeth Inn Emergency Night Shelter provides a safe sanctuary of rest for those who find themselves in distress. Open to men, women and children, the Elizabeth Inn provides three meals a day and extensive support services including case management, education and employment, computer lab, recovery meeting and assessments.
Offering assistance to individuals who are chronically homeless and live with disabilities, The Supportive Housing Program provide long-term housing to more than 70 individuals.
Through a Housing and Urban Development grant, MUST operates two programs in Cobb- one exclusively for veterans- and one in Cherokee.
The program supplies a stable living environment with case managers for guidance, helping move clients to more independance.
“I lived like there was no tomorrow and became a drug addict and alcoholic. I became homeless living on the streets of Atlanta and eventually went to jail...When I got out, I went to MUST and heard about the Permanent Supportive Housing Program. I thought it might be a dream, but I’ve lived here at MUST for two years now and have a huge amount of support. I’ve been through training and got a job. I’ve been sober for 9 months and go to AA daily. This lifestyle is totally different. I’m secure here and committed to this life. For some reason, God has let me survive and come to this place. He must have a purpose for me. -- Michael
