EPH is a volunteer-based organization. We are a partnership of 20 area churches and The Salvation Army. Together we give homeless families the safe, nurturing environments, case management, budget counseling, and other resources needed to forge a positive life path toward personal and familial stability. The program's success relies entirely on the generosity of people sharing their time and financial resources to help lift up these families. EPH receives no public funding.

Did you know?

Most taxpayers age 70 1/2 and older are allowed to make IRA distributions payable directly to a qualified charity without treating the distribution as taxable income. This is a great opportunity to donate to your charity of choice with no net impact on taxable income.

Helping Families

Recently we had the pleasure of assisting Amanda, a single mother and her two boys, secure and move into their new stable apartment! Before entering our program, Mom was turned down or found ineligible for housing due to her housing debt and job instability. This left them in a very vulnerable situation. Amanda was also in a very volatile and abusive relationship. She tried to leave, but could not find the stable housing needed to do so.

In an effort to gain control of their life and do what she could to escape an abusive situation, Amanda and her boys entered our program. With her Salvation Army case manager assistance, she was able to pay off many of her debts. Amanda then re-applied to the same housing from which she was once turned away. This time, with some advocating on our part as well as being able to speak to her own successes, she secured her own housing.

Amanda took advantage of additional education classes, include Nutrition class, Rent Smart, and budget counseling, as well as participated in parenting classes in the home. She is gainfully employed full-time and the boys are thriving in school and daycare respectively. The family is very excited about this new phase of their journey to self-sufficiency, and have expressed immeasurable gratitude for all of the help, guidance and support they have received while served by our partnership.
