A ministry that helps men improve their lives after they’ve become homeless has experienced significant growth in recent months. David Allen, board chairman of Cumming Home Ministries, said the program began with one home that provided transitional housing for men who had nowhere to live after a job loss, drug and alcohol problems or being released from prison. A third home is now being renovated to assist even more men and the organization’s thrift store soon will relocate to the former National Guard armory site on Canton Highway.
