CHM Transitional Program
Cumming Home Ministries currently occupies a home that we named "House of Grace" with a live-in House Manager who oversees residents and is available to counsel the men.
What Can a New Resident Expect?
At their intake interview, new residents are asked to state their goals and articulate the steps they plan to take to achieve their goals. Perhaps it is something as ordinary as just finding a job. CHM will do everything possible to assist our residents in achieving financial goals and regaining their independence.
The length of stay for residents varies upon their situations. Residents, including those with jobs fulfill ministry Give-Back Hours at The Store (or sometimes other approved projects, such as house renovations or landscape maintenance).
Cumming Home Ministries offers the opportunity for programs such as financial literacy and computer literacy. We also foster the development of life skills and maintaining long term sobriety.
