What are the requirements to be considered for an EPH home?
EPH partners with The Salvation Army to identify families for placement in our homes. In order to be considered, individuals must be homeless, have children, be willing to be part of EPH/TSA’s partnership program and abide by its rules. Adult applicants go through a background check and interview process. For the safety of volunteers, staff and other clients, a convicted felon may not qualify for the program.
Are participants required to attend church?
While we are a partnership of 21 area churches, there are no mandatory requirements for a family to attend a church or religious service. We do encourage all families to attend a church or service of personal or family choice.
Are EPH’s homes found in a certain part of Green Bay?
EPH wants families to blend into the community where they reside. Because of this, homes are spread throughout the Green Bay area. This allows for a smoother transition for families seeking stable housing and community life.
What is the success rate with these families?
EPH has helped more than 500 families escape homelessness since its inception in 1992. Recent experiences have demonstrated that one year after completing the program, over 80% of the families have remained in stable housing.
