Cobb Street Ministries
Over forty years ago, Mrs. Carol and her husband, Cobb County Commissioner, Harvey Paschal, started Cobb Street Ministries to meet the needs of homeless women, hurting pregnant women and women with children. Hundreds, if not thousands, have passed through their doors. This ministry provides emergency shelter, housing, food, clothing, parenting classes, self-help classes, addiction programs, and professional counseling to those who reside on the ministry property and those with needs in the community. Each resident is also offered assistance in obtaining medical and legal assistance, if needed. Each resident has received – not only love and compassion – but structure and instruction. All of these elements together have successfully catapulted many of these dear folks back into society. We help to change what they are doing TODAY to get them closer to where they want to be TOMORROW.

By donating to Devereux Georgia, you will be helping to provide treatment and services to Georgia’s most damaged and troubled youth. Hundreds of children, from the ages of 10-21, receive behavioral healthcare treatment on our secure campus in Kennesaw each year.

Devereux Georgia’s treatment continuum includes a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (hospital), Specialty Foster Care program, community-based treatment programs, and an AdvancED-accredited school. With Devereux Georgia’s help, youth develop the competency and confidence to achieve once-unthinkable goals such as literacy, graduation from high school, or the acquisition of basic job readiness skills to become successful and productive members of our community.

Can you imagine having to decide the choice between paying the light bill or buying food? Deciding between buying needed medication or buying groceries? Food insecurity is the new norm for many of our neighbors. An estimated 755,400 people in Atlanta and North Georgia feed themselves/their families through food pantries and meal programs each year. Of those who are food insecure, children of working families and senior citizens comprise the most affected. Reflections of Trinity / Team 58 Food Pantry has been serving the food insecure since January 2012 and currently distributes over 23,000 pounds of groceries every Saturday. Seventy (70%) percent of our clientele are children and senior citizens. For the cost of an average lunch date, YOU can feed a child or senior for a month! We invite you to donate and help bridge the food gap.
