Emergency Relief

The ECHO Food Pantry along with the ECHO Clothing Closet was created to assist our neighbors who have suffered a recent emergency and need help with food and clothing.

Neighbors who have undergone a recent loss of a job, or reduced income due to health issues, house fire, require help for emergency foster children, or other hardships are encouraged to visit us. 

Our neighbors in need receive 20 lbs of food and are equipped with five outfits and one pair of shoes. Children receive two new pairs of socks and underwear or diapers.

If you know of someone in need please refer them to us. They can find more information on what we offer and what they need to bring at our website under Need Help.



In times of crisis, our priority is to address the fundamental needs of our neighbors: food and clothing. We take time to understand their unique situations and connect them with community resources. Our emergency services are here to help neighbors who have undergone a recent job loss, income, house fire, emergency foster children, or other hardships.


Our Food Market, provides neighbors the opportunity to shop at no cost to them for nutritious non-perishable and perishable food relief, along with hygiene items.


Our clothing room, provides neighbors a curated collection of apparel, footwear, and accessories sufficient for an entire week. Additionally, we ensure that children are provided with essential items, including brand-new socks, undergarments, and diapers.



ECHO employs dedicated advocates who blend the roles of life coaches and social workers. They provide personalized support to neighbors, guiding them towards accessible housing, subsidized childcare, and financial aid, fostering a path to stability.



ECHO employs dedicated job coaches. These coaches assist with resume edits, mock interviews, career worthy clothing, in-house internships, and a variety of skill acquisition workshops.


ECHO offers topics that may include: navigating community services, searching for technical certifications, personal finance guidance, and more.
