Ecumenical Ministries, Inc. has served Baldwin County for more than 40 years.  The agency started in 1969 with one program and has expanded its services over the years to include ten different offerings.  Our staff makes every effort to provide emergency and crisis aid to neighbors in need, low income families, the disabled and the elderly.
Emergency Aid

  The urgent needs of individuals requiring assistance for food, utilities, rent, medical, transportation and other services are fully reviewed and met by EMI staff and trained volunteers.
  Our food pantries are primarily
stocked by local churches, schools, 
and individuals.  When available,
EMI's Gleaning program adds fresh
baked items, fruits and produce
give by local farmers, grocers and
restaurants.

Meals on Wheels

  Elderly and disabled neighbors who are physically limited and/or unable to prepare a hot nutritious meal are recipients of this important program.  Volunteers deliver meals five day a week.  The program serves limited areas on the Eastern Shore and South Baldwin communities.  Meals are prepared at Westminster Village for the Daphne, Spanish Fort area;  The Brennity of Farihope for the Fairhope area; and South Baldwin Regional Medical Center for the Foley area.
  We are always looking for volunteers to deliver meals.  Give Carol a call (928-3430) to volunteer for this very rewarding service.
Home Repair

   This EMI program provides help for low income elderly and handicapped clients who require assistance with basic home repairs and, when needed, long-term hurricane recovery.  Repairs are often made by hardworking volunteers and can include roofing, flooring, plumbing, wheelchair ramp construction as well as other improvements.
Prescription Assistance

  This vital program helps the elderly, the uninsured and under-insured secure life-saving medications at no cost.  Dedicated volunteers help clients complete the necessary paperwork.  EMI works closely with participating pharmaceutical indigent care programs including Ozanam Charitable Pharmacy in Mobile.
Community Development

   When invited, the staff trains leaders in church-based organizations to help their communities tackle and solve tough problems such as escalating homeowner's insurance, drugs in schools, paving dirt roads, building sidewalks, eradicating public blight and many other troubling issues.

Christmas Sharing.

   This is an annual community effort headed by EMI to reach out to those families, children and elderly in need during Christmas.  The program provides specially requested gifts and food baskets.  Donation are made by loving individuals, churches, businesses and other agencies through our distribution centers in Foley and Fairhope.
