Ecumenical Ministries started in 1969 with one program and has expanded its services over the years to address the most pressing needs of our community. Our programs have adapted and changed as our community’s needs have changed, but the mission to serve marginalized groups in effective and sustainable ways has remained. Our reputation as a positive force for change in Baldwin county can be attributed to the dedication of our staff, volunteers, and donors, who insist that a better life is attainable for our whole community.
