The Essex County Homeless Organization works to bring people from Essex County, VA, and the Northern Neck of Virginia off the streets during the cold months and provide them with food & a warm, safe place to sleep.
Last winter, E.C.H.O.  provided more than 250 person-nights of shelter and more than 500 meals to the homeless.
ECHO is a 501(c) 3 community-based charitable organization and is run exclusively by volunteers and is completely dependent on community donations to keep the shelter open. We welcome volunteers - no skills needed except for a warm heart and we welcome (100% tax-deductible) donations.
Our physical address is: 5340 Tidewater Trail, Loretto VA 22509. Our mailing address for donations is: P.O. Box 104, Champlain, VA 22438
Please call (540) 623-8643 if you'd like to help.
