Note From Our Executive Director
FACT: 6 out of every 10 students in our county qualify for free or reduced lunch. FACT: last Thursday, 46 homeless individuals were connected with supplies and resources via ECHO Cares. When surveying the facts, I do not get discouraged....I get motivated...convinced that ECHO must continue to expand and grow in order to meet the ever present needs of the poor in our community!
Yes, we provide emergency food and clothing, but our focus is always on the ultimate goal: long term stability for our hurting neighbors. Stability found through a GED exam passed, a job found at the ECHO Job Fair, a resume completed at our Job for Job class...a budget created in our Financial Literacy course or a long term goal met through the encouragement and connection with our Client Center.
The hurting in our community rely on us. We cannot make it without your support. Please consider giving today.
