ECHO, Inc., created in late 1969, is a non-profit, faith-community sponsored
charity organization, serving low-income individuals and families in the
Janesville area. It exists through the generosity of others in the community.
ECHO stands for Everyone Cooperating to Help Others. Congregations help
us, so do many individuals, businesses, school and community groups, foundations,
and social service agencies.
ECHO has grown from being a food pantry and clothing depot to being a
charity organization called upon to help meet temporary housing, food, transportation and other emergency needs for low-income
ECHO seeks to help people help themselves through its programs
and services, not readily available through other sources, and to
assist them in utilizing other existing services and programs in
the community. It does not impose any theological or political value
system upon those served. Requests for assistance may be made at
the ECHO Office.
