I am interested in receiving information about:

"I lost my job and was not able to pay my rent. ESM staff and volunteers reassured me that it was OK to ask for help and helped with rental assistance. Thanks to ESM I am back on track again."

In response to the Gospel, ESM promotes self-sufficiency and restores dignity by providing food, medicine, housing, job placement, educational programs, and spiritual encouragement.

ESM provides a collaborative Christian response to low income and homeless people in crisis. 

ESM will comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws, rules and regulations prohibiting discrimination.
