Our Vision

EEECHO envisions a community of stakeholders vested in more productive and resilient neighborhoods, self-reliance and advanced preparedness to adequately adapt to the growing challenges which adversely and disproportionately impact our most vulnerable communities.

We go the extra mile to amplify the voices of those we serve.
