ECHO Ministries Inc

ECHO was established to help provide for the spiritual and tangible needs of children in care.

Children are removed every day from their homes due to abuse and neglect. Almost always they arrive at a new home with only the clothes on their backs. We are a 501c3 nonprofit designed to help provide for the tangible needs of these children through our many Echo Shops as well as work within the community to strengthen the system of support. 


ECHO was established to help provide for the spiritual and tangible needs of children in care.

We work to come along side of caregivers by lessening their financial responsibility, so they can focus on the important mission of caring for the children. Each shop has a team of volunteers ready to listen, pray for and serve families.

Foster, Adoptive, or Kinship caregivers are offered seven items per child in their legal custody, per month, when they bring their placement letter or notorized document and driver's license for their first visit. New placements (placed within 90 days) receive 14 items on their first visit.  All items are free of charge.

All new and gently used items include but are not limited to: clothing, undergarments, shoes, diapers, furniture, baby equipment, clothing accessories, sports equipment, school supplies, hygiene products, and much more.


Family Experience Assistant

Our shop volunteers have the unique opportunity to serve, pray with, and play with children in our community who have experienced trauma. They also help to create and maintain an environment that helps the families feel truly special and loved.
