Jessi Delsin started this petition to marietta city council

This is a petition in support of Must Ministries on their proposal to relocate to better serve those in need. Keep in mind that most residents are women with children. Please be empathetic when thinking about those who stay at Must Ministries! We do not control the families we are born into and we do not control some of the things that we experience in life. Please keep that in mind. 

Hearing Thursday, October 10th, 2019 at the City Council Chambers

A couple good points I have seen include: 

This provides a place for those in the area to go RATHER than potentially sleeping or staying around your neighborhood. 

This provides better care for those who need help, including women, children, and victims of domestic violence and poverty. 

It is time to stop the “not in my neighborhood” mentality and start embracing the growing demand of helping those less fortunate and assisting with what Must Ministries needs to better care for the community. 

Most of those who are associated with Must are not considered, by definition, “vagrants”. 

Having a shelter where those in need can go within our community says something about us, as a community, and our willingness to be good people. It sets an example for how we treat others, which is admirable. 

There are people in cobb who will ALWAYS be homeless anyway, so what is the point in denying them a safe place to go. 

Many of these people could potential be mentally ill or struggle with addiction (another mental illness) and deserve to have long term recovery care. 

Must Ministries provides food, drug rehabilitation, transition from homelessness to employment, help with finding steady employment, etc.
