Ways Can We Help
Elizabeth Inn Homeless Shelter- The Elizabeth Inn Shelter provides a safe sanctuary of rest for those who find themselves in distress. Open to men, women, families and children. Intake hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m - 2 p.m.TBRA (Tenant-Based Rental Assistance) - A program to provide direct assistance, including a rental subsidy helps make a difference between what a renter can afford and the actual rent. The federal HUD funds assist with rent, utility deposits/costs and security deposits.Rapid Rehousing - A federally-based funding program that swerves an intervention designed to help individuals and families that don't need intensive and ongoing support to quickly exit homelessness and return to permanent housing.Hotel Vouchers - In Cherokee County, funds are available to help those who qualify to be temporarily housed in a hotel/motel until a more permanent solution can be established. Occasionally, money is donated in Cobb to do the same.
Employment Services provides both individualized job coaching and group centered learning activities to enhance the marketable skills of those seeking employment and connect people to jobs.
Whether it's clothing for an interview or for a child to go to school, the four MUST Ministries clothes closets meet an important basic need.

Where to get help
Elizabeth Inn Emergency Homeless Shelter
55 Elizabeth Church Road
Marietta, GA 30060
Thank you to all who helped me with my rent. I have been very ill, and if I didn’t receive this assistance, I wouldn’t have a place to call home. The struggle continues, but I am so grateful!
I was homeless and came to MUST for the food pantry. I didn’t want to take my newborn to a shelter and I was afraid DFCS would take my children. MUST not only offered housing but also helped me set goals and reach a few. I am going to make something of myself and it is all because of MUST!
MUST Ministries was there when we were in need. Because of my son’s cancer, things fell apart fast. We went from middle class to broke. In one year of housing stability, we have been able to recover quite a bit from the devastation of our family. Thank you!
Because of all the wonderful work by MUST employees, I was able to return home with my son. This will help me become self-sufficient and reconnect with my family. Thank you all so much for the hard work you do. The gas cards were very instrumental in my journey home.

I was homeless, sleeping under bridges and in cardboard boxes. My problem with alcohol was out of control. MUST Ministries took me in off the streets and let me know that people do care for the homeless after all. I thank God for everything he has blessed me with: shelter, love, forgiveness and freedom. Every night is like a dream come true. I climb into bed and say, "This is a gift from above!"
