NORTH COUNTY — El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO) celebrates a milestone as it announces helping over 100 men, women, and children find stable housing in our community. Since January of this year, ECHO’s emergency shelter programs, outreach initiatives, and dedicated team of staff and volunteers have made an impact on the lives of 101 individuals and families facing homelessness.

Through a comprehensive approach combining shelter services, targeted outreach, and individualized case management, ECHO empowers those in need to overcome challenges and find lasting solutions. The group’s commitment and collective efforts have been instrumental in positively impacting our community and giving hope to those once facing uncertain living situations.

“At ECHO, we believe that every person deserves a place to call home, and it is truly inspiring to witness the positive outcomes we have achieved in such a short span of time,” said Wendy Lewis, executive director of ECHO. “Our success in helping over 100 individuals and families secure housing demonstrates the effectiveness of our holistic approach and the dedication of our amazing team.”
