Listen up because you might be surprised at what Dr. John Morgan shares about why Cobb Hope Park came to a screeching halt a few years ago..

A native Texan, retired university professor and dean, Dr. John Morgan has volunteered many years with metro charities serving the homeless, including Cobb’s Center for Family Resources, MUST Ministries, the Samaritan House (now Atlanta Center for Self-Sufficiency), and more recently, Marietta First United Methodist Church’s Good Samaritan Outreach, where he started a job search and bike ministry.

As a member of Cobb’s Faith Partnership, and Cobb Collaborative’s Homelessness Awareness Strategy Team Effort, he leads the latter’s Homeless Shelter subcommittee and regularly performs at its Memorial/Vigil for deceased homeless/veterans.

He led a team of citizens, social workers, faith representatives, officers and teachers in presenting the county with “A Feasibility Study for an Unsheltered Homeless Outreach Portal Program in Cobb County” that envisions a Cobb Hope Park.

With the onset of the pandemic, he now supplies more than 35 regional charities with weekly lists of job fairs/events, training opportunities, including hundreds of various postings/notices and other helpful employment resources.

He lives in Marietta, GA, with his wife Shirley, a retired special education/reading teacher; they have a grown daughter, a social worker, and son/computer entrepreneur in Washington, D.C.
