United Ministries/Earl's Place easily is one of the best-run, low-overhead, socially responsible organizations that I have encountered. The men they help get off the street and into jobs and permanent housing are now contributing citizens who almost universally look back on their time at Earl's Place as a rewarding, life-changing experience. You would be hard-pressed to find a charitable cause that provides more for the Baltimore community.

Our family donates and follows the work of Earls Place because we believe homeless men can thrive when given a strong community. This is proven by the outcomes and years of success at Earls. The staff works tirelessly to give support to the men while enabling them to become independent.

Earl's Place gives a supportive home to men who need it, and encourages each of them to be the best person they can be, overcoming the challenges of poverty and addiction. The men are respected and expected to do their best. When they graduate they're called "Visionaries" and with good reason....they've dreamt about what they can be, and Earl's Place helps them attain it and become productive members of society.

Earl's Place is a favorite of our family's because of the wonderful way that it is organized and run, because of its obvious successes, and because it was very close to my mother's heart. She believed that many of the men there face challenges similar to those that faced my uncle, her little brother. It is so good to know that our contributions are helping someone to find their way in the world again.

My husband and I have donated to United Ministries for several years and consider it a great investment. We appreciate the many ways that United Ministries gives us to get to know the men they serve and the work they do. We're happy to see that our money is put to good use providing support and encouragement to people who need it and use it to turn their lives around.

We are proud to count ourselves as part of the Earl's Place family.

I have seen the impact that United Ministries makes on the men that are served by the witness of these men. They have attended our Annual Meetings and met with our members to explain how their lives have changed since being a part of United Ministries. I've seen positive results of men moving into their own homes, finding employment, buying a car, being producers instead of takers. This is a much needed and worthy orgnaizaiton.

The Great!

United Ministries is an incredible organization. They are transforming people from homeless men on the streets to contributing members of society. These men are encouraged to share their stories. Our church looks forward each year to having a backyard bbq at Earl's Place (United Ministries's transitional housing). We share food, laughs, and stories with the men. We quickly learn that we are not that different than these folks who had a disease such as alcoholism ruin their lives. Once a year a couple of the men will come and speak at our church. We need to do more than just provide a hand-out or write out a check. We need to meet and understand those in need and give them a chance to understand us. I have reviewed their plan to expand and fully support it. Our church has offered our endowment as collateral if necessary because we believe in United Ministries's mission.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

meeting the men who are current clients and those that have "graduated" back in to society.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They have lower overhead. The money we give goes to the mission. For my 25th wedding anniversary we had a party and asked folks to give gifts to United Ministries. It is a cause I felt good about asking my family and friends to support.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Most of the staff are former clients who can relate to the client's needs. The director, Shelia, is an exceptional person who cares deeply and is an inspiration to everyone.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand to support more men and save these men from homelessness. If space allows they could consider women and families also.

I have personally seen the impact this program makes in the lives of the people they serve. I have seen men go from living on the streets to graduating from college with honors. United Ministries’ Earl’s Place program doesn’t put band-aids on gaping wounds; it rebuilds lives! This program gives its residence a chance to repent, rehabilitate and restore their lives. Every facet of the individual is included in this ministry of transformation. When I give a donation to United Ministries, I know that I am helping to make a difference. I know that my support of United Ministries is helping to change our world, one (whole) life at a time. Lois C. St. Mark's UCC Baltimore, MD

I have found Earl's Place to be a great place for rehabilitation for men. It is a necessity in the community for the men to renew values and get a better sense of direction. I'm a member of an organization- Ravens's Roost #69 and a private donor to Earl's Place. As a Roost member, we usually visit and watch a football game with the residence at least one a year.The residence are always respectful and thankful for our visit. We also share food and great conversations during our visit. The Executive Director, Shelia Helgerson is a wonderful, hard working and caring person. It has given me great pleasure to know and support her in what she is doing for the residents. May Earl's Place continue its purpose for years to come. April Cox Ravens Roost #69

What I have heard from the men at Earl's Place is that they are very glad to be there. Most of them go to school, get diplomas or degrees,get a job and their own apartment. Many have come to my church and tell about their happy experience at Earl's Place. They have much- praise for the officers who run the place.
