A Special Thanks to EPH:
When asked, “How has this housing helped me,”
This housing program must be the work of GOD! It surely is a wonderful opportunity to have a program available to provide people going through a rough situation. Homelessness is a big ordeal and when you can move into an apartment to help you get back on your feet as long as you follow some guidelines … AMEN! Thank you forever!
Your support has allowed me to focus purely on the areas that need attention in my life. I have been able to reestablish contact with my daughter, who resides in kinship-care, now that I am in a stable housing program. Your housing builds a sense of confidence, a sense of security and a sense of stability that I have never had before. This housing plays a big role in preparing me to take the next appropriate steps in my life.
Your home provides me a place to bathe, to cook, a place to put my personal belongings and it allows each member in my family a bed to sleep in all under the same roof. I am so very grateful for your assistance in helping my family stay together during our time of need.
Following is a thank you note we received from a youth within one of our families. She applied for and received a camp scholarship through our EPH/TSA partnership. The Basic Needs Giving Partnership grant received last year provided the funding for incremental case management services as well as for scholarships for children within our transitional housing families.
The Basic Needs Giving Partnership Grant was made possible by the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation, the US Venture Fund for Basic Needs, the J.J. Keller Foundation, and Community Foundation donor partners.
“To the people who helped build me and gave me a chance to be a teen, I want to thank you. I am so excited to attend these camps. At the gymnastics program, I’d like to work on increasing my responsibility, flexibility, knowledge, and of course a lot more, but that would take up a lot of room. Within The Salvation Army camp, the things that I hope to build are creativity, communication skills, in general any skills, even leadership. My summer is looking brighter when it comes to looking forward to camps.”
“You have no idea how much these camps mean to me. It put a good smile, big and happy smile, on my face, knowing that I will be staying busy and having fun.”
“Thank you so much!”
