    Organization Mission

    Founded as an emergency relief effort in 1989 after the devastation from Hurricane Hugo, East Cooper Community Outreach (ECCO) has since grown into a permanent resource for the community with three main service areas: Assistance, Guidance, and Resources. Thousands of individuals each year receive assistance for food, clothing, household furnishings, financial aid, dental care, medical care, prescription assistance, and counseling, along with access to community resources for financial literacy classes, computer skills training, job readiness workshops, and asset development.

    Enhanced through personal interactions with staff who provide individualized support and coaching for each client, ECCO meets each client where they are and helps them navigate the challenges they are facing with care and compassion. ECCO is also a place where people who want to help their neighbors in need can find meaningful ways to share their time, talent, and treasure.
