The Salvation Army Transitional Housing program is a true example of community collaboration in meeting human needs. The Salvation Army works with the Ecumenical Partnership for Housing (EPH), an interfaith group which purchases and maintains several houses in the area. They provide 14 fully furnished apartments for family transitional housing in eight buildings, known as the Isaiah, Luke, Ruth, James, Matthew, Martha,St Paul and Jubilee homes. Cleaning and upkeep are provided by members of EPH, while The Salvation Army provides intense and holistic case management.
Churches participating in EPH include First United Methodist, Grace Lutheran, Resurrection Catholic, Union Congregational, St. Paul’s United Methodist, First United Presbyterian Church of De Pere, Calvary Lutheran, St. Phillip The Apostle Catholic,St. Bernard Catholic Church, St. Anne's the Episcopal, St. Elizabeth Seton, Suamico United Methodist, Green Bay Community Church, and St. Paul's Episcopal.
