Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t have my documents, what do I do?

We would be happy to provide resources to other agencies until you get your documents taken care of and even provide you with a small amount of food in the meantime. 

What do I need to register with ECHO?

You will need an ID, a social security card for yourself and anyone else in the home needing services, and a recent piece of mail with your current address.

I just came in last month, can I get help again?

Unfortunately, ECHO exists to help those people that are in emergencies and you can only come once in a 6 month period. We would be happy to provide other resources for any ongoing food needs.

I’m homeless, can I still receive help?

Of course, our homeless neighbors can come to ECHO once in a month period if needed.
