"Give Them Roots and Create Wings"

January - 2019 Special News Update
Leadership Transition(s) Under Way

Please welcome Julie Aderhold as our new Executive Director! While Julie’s official start date was January 7 th , she started getting up to speed in December – reviewing our financials, attending meetings, tackling our recommended reading list.

Julie will replace Dave Pietenpol, as he transitions into retirement after fourteen dedicated years with EPH, the last eight as the Executive Director. 
 A message from Julie :

“Hello, friends of EPH! My name is Julie Aderhold. With a joy for Christian service to others, I am super excited to be starting in the role of Executive Director of EPH as Dave Pietenpol retires. I feel very blessed to be a part of an organization that not only serves the homeless population, but has had the dedication and passion of Dave, various boards, volunteers and donors throughout our history. 

My background includes professional and volunteer leadership roles in the areas of marketing and finance. My education includes a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with Marketing and Journalism majors from the University of WI-Eau Claire. My family has been long-time, active members of First United Methodist Church-Green Bay, one of the founding EPH partnership churches. I’m looking forward to ministering in faith together!”
A message from Dave:

“In February of last year, I informed the Executive Committee of my desire to step back from the day-to-day Executive Director responsibilities by early 2019. The timing seemed right, both personally and strategically for EPH. I feel Julie will be a great fit for our mission and ministry, and look forward to being a resource to Julie throughout the transition process. I remain passionate about EPH and the families we serve and will continue on as a member of the Board of Directors.

The last 14 years have been a blessing to me. It has impacted who I am; I know I am a different person today because of EPH. I feel blessed with the trust placed in me by the Board of Directors, but even more so by you as a financial supporter of EPH. 

Thank you for the trust you placed in me – and in EPH – to make a difference for homeless families with children and for our community. Together we have made a difference. Blessings to you all, and thank you again.” 
Two more leadership transitions!

Another retirement …
A message from Jeff Carels

“The 10 years I have worked for EPH have been very rewarding and have given me an appreciation of the plight of homeless families. I plan to continue serving these families as an EPH volunteer and joining my wife in retirement. We are looking forward to spending time together travelling and spoiling our grandchildren.”

Jeff, we will miss you! You truly understood the
challenges and barriers faced by homeless families,
and as such, was an example of kindness and compassion
And a relocation …
A message from Sue Mills:

“It is with great mixed feelings that I share that I will be leaving EPH toward the end of January. My husband, an Episcopal priest, has accepted a church in Southport, NC beginning the 1st of February. We are excited to start on this new journey, but sad to be leaving our friends and family in the Green Bay area.

It has been my great pleasure to serve the staff and families in the EPH community. It is truly a blessing to work as part of an extended Christian community to make a difference in the lives of families who are coming out of homelessness.”

Sue, you will be missed! Many thanks for
your coordination and organizational skills!
