"Give Them Roots and Create Wings"

July - 2019 News Update
What Does A Bike Mean To You?
What does a bike mean to you? Carefree childhood days? A form of serious exercise? A fun activity on these hot summer days? For some of our families, it means critical transportation. 

We have a family who just moved out of one of our transitional homes and is moving on to self-sufficiency. This past winter, the father in this family was struggling with reliable transportation to work, as some of our families do. You see, his job was from 5:00 am – 4:00 pm, and buses in Green Bay don’t begin their routes until 5:00 am…too late for him to get to work on time. What he needed was his own reliable transportation. Through Spokes of Hope (a program of the local non-profit Whatsoever You Do), we were able to provide a bicycle to this family…a critical form of transportation. Through this recent past winter of dark, snow, ice and (sometimes extreme) cold, this father rode his bike to work every day.
Please welcome two new employees!

In April we shared with you David Vander Bloomen , would be leaving EPH to spend more time with the company he owns, Branding180.  David stayed through the hiring and training of his replacement and intends to continue as a volunteer for EPH. We also shared that Pat Stevenson left EPH in May.

We are blessed to welcome De’Ette Radant as our new Property Manager.

De’Ette comes to EPH after almost 20 years at St. Norbert College. She has always felt called to contribute and advocate for the common good and is excited to be a part of a faith-filled organization that strives to bring hope and joy to families in need of stable and affordable housing. Mentoring students, both domestic and international, as well as tutoring at Literacy Green Bay has allowed for a lifelong, growing passion to teach and learn from one another.  De’Ette and her husband Russ have two grown sons, live in Bellevue, and are members of Ascension Lutheran Church.
We are also blessed to welcome Kelsey O’Donnell-Mauthe as our new EPH Office Manager.

Kelsey is a 2011 graduate of UW-Green Bay with a Bachelor of Art in Communications. Kelsey worked for Prevea Health for eight years serving in several different areas; Quality, Health and Wellness and Client Services. During this time, she developed her customer service skills, project management skills and was promoted to a supervisory role. Following her time with Prevea, she worked for the Elite Group as a sales and marketing coordinator and followed that with the creation of her web design and marketing company. 

 Kelsey has been active in the community. She feels that hard work, a team environment and a sense of humor are critical in the workplace. In her spare time Kelsey enjoys walking her dog, traveling and DIY home projects.
