MUST Ministries Offers Affordable Health Care to Adults in Financial Need MUST Ministries has been providing comprehensive wraparound services including food, housing, jobs, and clothing for the homeless and those in dire need in metro Atlanta. The organization has expanded to now offer health care to anyone with financial difficulties through an on-campus Mercy Care Clinic in Marietta and the mobile Bethesda Community Clinic in Canton, both open to individuals without insurance or who have insurance with a high deductible.In the first six months of operation, the clinic provided 542 patient visits, but Mercy Care has the capacity to serve even more people in need. “There’s a public misunderstanding that Mercy Care is just a homeless clinic, but it’s open to the entire community,” said Cheryl Haire, MUST Ministries senior director of strategic partnerships and community outreach. “We offer full service primary and preventive health care. We take Medicaid and Medicare and don’t turn anyone away.”Mercy Care is a not-for-profit, federally qualified health care clinic that charges clients based on a sliding fee scale, depending on their income. The clinic provides primary care, screenings, women’s health services, behavioral health services, and medication management. In addition, a licensed, professional counselor provides help for substance abuse and depression. Mercy Care also has a wide network to refer patients for further care.

In Cherokee County, MUST Ministries is partnering with Bethesda Community Clinic to offer free healthcare services through the Mobile Medical Unit, which is fully equipped to offer primary care, chronic disease management, women’s health, pediatric care, sick visits, and physicals. The mobile unit is at the MUST location in Canton at 111 Brown Industrial Parkway on the first Friday of each month from 10:00am-2:00pm. No appointment is necessary.
