A Beacon of Hope,
A Place of Refuge
Begin to Recover
Providing more than 78,486 safe nights of rest last year, MUST is a place to begin to recover from financial disaster, drug and/or alcohol addiction, discouragement or job loss. Between the Emergency Shelter and Supportive Housing, MUST serves as a place of refuge for many in our community.
Elizabeth Inn -- The Elizabeth Inn Shelter provides a safe sanctuary of rest for those who find themselves in distress. Open to men, women, families and children, the 72-bed Elizabeth Inn provides three meals a day and extensive support services including case management, education and employment, computer lab, recovery meeting, referrals and assessments.
Permanent Supportive Housing -- Offering assistance to individuals who are chronically homeless and live with either physical or mental disabilities, the Supportive Housing Program provides long-term housing to more than 100 individuals. Through a Housing and Urban Development grant, MUST operates three 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 greater independence and stability.
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!"
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!
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.
--A grateful client
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!
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!
