Life is an ECHO. What you send out, you get back.

Working together to serve and support Rock County’s most-vulnerable populations since 1969.

Heart handshake Everyone Cooperating To Help Others

ECHO is a nonprofit, faith-community sponsored charity organization. Over the years ECHO has evolved from a food pantry and clothing depot to a full-fledged charity organization called upon to help meet temporary housing, food, transportation, and other emergency needs for low-income families in Rock County, Wisconsin.

The ECHO Mission

ECHO is a nonprofit, faith community-sponsored 501(c)(3) charity organization serving Rock County, Wisconsin.

ECHO 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.

ECHO 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.
