ECHO stands for Everyone Cooperating to Help Others

ECHO’s mission is dedicated to meeting housing, food and other basic human needs and addressing the barriers to self-sufficiency.  ECHO seeks to help people help themselves through its programs and services, not readily available through other sources, and to assist them in utilizing other existing services and programs in the community. It does not impose any theological or political value system upon those served. It exists through the generosity of others in the community. Congregations help us, so do many individuals, businesses, school and community groups, foundations, and social service agencies. Requests for assistance may be made at the ECHO Office.

ECHO, Inc., created in late 1969, is a non-profit, faith-community sponsored charity organization, serving low-income individuals and families in the Janesville area.

The future of ECHO depends upon you! Volunteers are needed for many task. Contributions of food may be taken to the High. St. Site. Cash donations are always accepted.

We are calling upon you to help us meet food, transportation and other emergency needs for low-income families. Learn more about how you can help!
