EPH Summary

EPH is a comprehensive, all-encompassing program to help and assist homeless families transition from a life of turmoil, turbulence and dependency to a life of hope, stability and self-sufficiency. Since its launch in 1992, together with the partnership of twenty-two local churches, working with The Salvation Army, EPH provides transitional housing to families in need in the greater Green Bay area.

EPH owns and manages twenty family-size units and 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, has been providing individual comforters for each new family member.

Give them roots and create wings!
