Essex County Homeless Organization
ECHO has a simple mission: to bring people off the streets during the cold weather months, providing them a warm, safe place to sleep. We welcome ALL volunteers who wish to serve those in need and donors who wish to defray the costs of providing emergency lodging. The only skill required is a warm heart.
Currently operating as an emergency overnight shelter for the winter
months, the shelter is open from January - March from
6:00pm until 6:00am. We provide a hot evening meal and a bagged "to go"
breakfast. Stay tuned...we are planning on expanding our services to
become a 24 hour 365 day shelter with services to assist with social and
mental health issues.
