There is nothing more rewarding than working with the men of Earl’s Place. Based on the success rate experienced at Earl’s Place, it’s clear that Earl’s Place is more than just the next stop on the men’s remarkable journeys. Earl’s Place is truly their home, and the dedication of the staff creates a culture that truly makes it a family. Every interaction with the men brings on such emotion – tears, joy, hope…. The power of each man’s story and the impact that Earl’s Place has on their lives inspires me each day.
United Ministries is a highly committed and successful organization that is best known for Earl's Place, a transitional housing program for homeless men. If you meet some of the men served by this program, you will understand the tremendous value it generates for the men and the community.
