EPH - Give them roots and create wings!

From the Interview with Former Executive Director Julie Aderhold

“EPH began in 1992 when Union Congregational Church wanted to house a family within their parsonage experiencing homelessness. They thought it was best to use their property that they no longer needed for housing their own maintenance person. They reached out to several area churches to ask for help. Three other Green Bay congregations (First United Methodist Church, Grace Lutheran & Resurrection Catholic Church) responded and joined together with The Salvation Army to form an ecumenical response to family homelessness, and formed EPH.”


Ecumenical Partnership for Housing

Ecumenical Partnership for Housing (EPH) began as a partnership of four Green Bay area churches and The Salvation Army, all seeking an ecumenical response to homelessness in our community.  Our partnership has grown to include 20 Green Bay area churches.  In 2019, EPH served 138 families, consisting of 40 transitional housing families, 16 long-term supportive housing families and 82 families in our prevention program.

Our mission is providing safety, stability, and solutions leading to self-sufficiency for families with children experiencing homelessness and families at risk of homelessness in our community.

Case management is an integral component of all three areas of focus, as is our partnerships with The Salvation Army, Golden House, Freedom House Ministries, House of Hope and Family Services.
