Who is the modern day orphan?
We view the modern day orphan as any child who is not in the care of his/her biological parents.
According to the state, these children are placed into one of the following categories:
ECHO’s goal is to help all children living in any one of the categories listed above.
How do we provide for the orphans needs?
Every month, caregivers (foster, adoptive, relative and non-relative) can come to an ECHO location and choose seven items for each child in their legal care. (This includes biological and adopted children.) If the child has been placed within 90 days, and it’s their first time visiting an ECHO location since that placement, they are allowed to choose fourteen items.
An item is defined as: an outfit (top/bottom), a pair of shoes, a bed frame, a mattress, a large toy, three onesies, six baby socks, bibs,or hats, three small toys (the size of your hand), three books, one package of diapers, and three accessories (belts,socks,hats). If there are any questions concerning our items policy please speak with the Director of the center.
