Who We Are...
Our Mission The mission of EChO is to provide assistance to residents of the Evergreen mountain communities who are unemployed, under-employed, dealing with a long term illness, or experiencing other forms of personal crisis.
Our Purpose EChO is organized as a charity following the Gospel of Jesus Christ that calls us to “feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, welcome the stranger, clothes the naked, care for the sick and imprisoned (Matthew 25:35-36) and “to love one another as He has loved us” (John 13:34).
Our Funding EChO relies on contributions from local churches, charitable organizations, corporate and individual donors. In addition, EChO operates a Resale Shop for the purpose of supplementing its income in order to accomplish its mission.
EChO fulfills its mission by providing food, clothing, and other items that meet the most urgent needs of those it serves. Our food bank allows clients to shop weekly; and short term emergency financial assistance is provided for basic necessities such as rent, utilities, transportation, medical and phone. Education assistance and help with child care expenses are also available along with mentoring and counseling.
Our success is due to the generosity of our partners and donors who help us meet the needs of our mountain community, for which we are immensely thankful and grateful. Also, the proceeds from EChO’s Resale Shop & Home Furnishings benefit our neighbors in need with many programs. We provide personal attention for hundreds of families and individuals through the food bank, childcare assistance, education funding, health care referrals, counseling and our EChO Jobs Center to mention a few.
