Mission Statement

Ecumencial Community Helping Others (ECHO) is non-profit, all-volunteer private agency whose purpose is to help people in need in our community. ECHO's members are religious congregations in Burke and Springfield, Virginia. Those congregations support the work of ECHO with donations of food, clothing, money and work by volunteers. Donations from congregations, civic groups, charitable foundations and individuals enable ECHO to assist people who suffer the effects of long-term poverty, as well as people who are experiencing an emergency need.

Description

ECHO provides needy persons with food, clothing, housewares and financial assistance. All assistance is given without cost to the client. All of the persons working at ECHO are unpaid volunteers. These volunteers perform all of the functions at ECHO, including receiving, sorting and preparing donations for the use of clients; client counseling; building maintenance; and all administrative functions, including accounting, building operations, personnel management, volunteer recruitment, and volunteer training and scheduling.
