Homelessness is an issue in Forsyth County and is not just for drug addicts and alcoholics. Cumming Home Ministries (CHM) was birthed in 2010 because of one such man in a tent. Since its inception, CHM has provided a Christ-centered home to over 150 homeless men needing and wanting to make positive, long-term changes in their lives. Since 2010, CHM has been the ONLY free-admission transitional housing ministry in Forsyth County assisting homeless men.
