Who We Are

United Ministries, a faith and community-based 501(c) (3) nonprofit, was incorporated in 1993 and is a recognized mission of the United Church of Christ.  This project was the vision of Rev. Eugene Bartell, former pastor of First United Evangelical United Church of Christ, and several persons who volunteered at The Supper Club, a feeding program at the church. The name United Ministries was chosen to exemplify a broad-based community organization consisting of both secular and ecumenical groups, which is reflected in its active welcome of partnerships with congregations and individuals of any or no religious persuasion.

Our Mission

United Ministries is a housing and social justice organization dedicated to assisting men who are homeless who want to change their lives, and to changing community attitudes toward the homeless.







Earl’s Place,


the first project of United Ministries, opened

in 1997 and is named for Earl Johnson, who,

before his death was involved both as a client

and a volunteer at The Supper Club, a soup

kitchen in Fells Point. With the support of many

generous donors we provide housing and

supportive services to men who are homeless.
