about echo

ECHO operates three facilities in North County that each provide meals and a safe and secure overnight shelter to meet the immediate needs of families and individuals in our community who are facing hunger and homelessness.  Residents are provided individual case management services to assist them in securing a job and finding permanent and sustainable housing.  While staying at ECHO, residents are taught life skills for employment, financial literacy, health care management and parenting.

 A force of 1,500 community volunteers provide ancillary support to run the shelter programs and meal programs that serve as many as 150 dinners each night to shelter residents and people facing hunger and homelessness in the community.
