TO: United Ministries 12/1/10 RE: Earl’s Place To Whom It May Concern: As a former resident (a 2000 Visionary Graduate), my self-esteem, misery, and general outlook on life seemed hopeless, all due to my addiction that seemed to me at that time, out of control. However, Earl’s Place, with its supervision and community changed that discernment. I was homeless and penniless in 1998. Earl’s Place greeted me with open arms, and provided a means to empower myself towards a “NEW WAY OF LIFE”. A way of life that has continued “one day at a time.” Kudos, to Sheila’s encouragement and her belief in me. Moreover,extra kudos to all the people that support Earl’s Place. Without YOUR support, Sheila’s selfless time and effort, including United Ministries inspiration and maintainability could not continue in this fine city. Many blessings towards a LONG AND PROSPEROUS CAMPAIGN TO HELP THOSE WHO ARE HOMELESS AND IN NEED, Anonymous Disclaimer: So much more needs to be addressed YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT will assure this will happen.

When I came into Earl's Place I was totally lost and alone. I had no clue how I was going to function in the world without drugs and alcohol. I didn't even know that that world existed. Earl's place showed me a way of life that was far better than the one that I was living. I was homeless, restless, irritable and very disontent with life and Earl's Place showed me how to live life on life's terms. As a direct result of that, today I am successful in life and in my recovery.

Despite the rave reviews, there exist an under current of racism. The clients are well aware of how it is employed, yet say nothing for fear of termination from the program. I will say that time and practices would reveal a very different director than first impression would have it. Everythng that glidders isn't gold.

Relatively open minded perspective and have concluded that the program is desperately needed, but needs new blood. The truth is obvious if you look closely at it. I pray for you Sheila.

black and white residents were treated equally. It was obvious that whites recieved better treatment than blacks. Sheila was very nice to us all, but this was a cover up for her personal failures.
