Everyday Christians Helping Orphans
is a volunteer and donation based not for profit currently operating in Polk, Hardee and Highlands County Florida. We are designed to help provide services and necessities to children in foster, adoptive, relative and non relative care. We do this through our multiple ECHO Shops where caregiving families come every month to get items for the children in their care for FREE. This helps restore dignity to the children who are removed from their homes and a financial relief for those who open their doors.
We believe the church has been called to care for the orphans. Our goal is to engage our community of believers and equip them with tools that can help change the lives of children in need. We have opportunities for face to face connection with the children, availability for groups to make an impact throughout the tri-county area, ability for local schools or businesses to provide for the children in their community, and a place for families to serve together.
Our partnership with our local Community Based Care Organization allows us to connect those interested in becoming a fosterparent, forever family, or those in need of additional support with ease. Partnerships with other faith based organizations allows us to better meet the needs of families locally as well as internationally.
