New Mission

community_partnershipsNew Missions We’re Supporting

Ecumenical Partnership for Housing (EPH)

Through collaboration between sixteen area churches and The Salvation Army, homeless families receive shelter, case management, mentorship, education support, and budget counseling.

EPH is a comprehensive, all-encompassing program to help homeless families transition from a life of turmoil, turbulence and dependency to a life of hope, stability and self-sufficiency.

  • EPH has been providing transitional housing since 1992 in the greater Green Bay area.
  • EPH owns and manages twenty family-size units.
  • EPH relies on volunteer help to run its organization, and to maintain the units.
  • A social worker from The Salvation Army screens families that apply, and places them in available housing units.
  • A wide variety of educational and mentoring programs are made available to enable our families to succeed.
  • Children are provided with a stable home, while parents pay off debts, acquire education and certifications, and pursue gainful employment.
  • Each new family is welcomed with a hot meal and pantry staples. A local group, called Warmth From the Heart, provides individual comforters for each new family member.
  • We had a crew cleaning our house last week and are very close to being ready for our “new” family. Clipboards will be sent around for staples to stock the pantry shelves, provide a hot meal their first night in the house, and provide birthday bags with fixings so they can prepare a cake for the celebration.
