East Cooper Community Outreach (ECCO)

When local neighbors are facing financial hardship, ECCO is here to provide help and hope. Whether it’s one single service provided like food or financial assistance or years of walking through hardship, our team will encourage, advocate, and develop a system of support focused on helping our neighbors navigate through life’s challenges.

All programs and services strive to help neighbors find a path toward opportunity. ECCO’s ministry of “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” aims to improve the quality of life in our community in a compassionate way that respects the dignity and worth of every person.
