Kandyce, the artist who created the image used for the ECHO Lighthouse Collection, is a talented, creative young lady as shown below by a project she's done at home during the COVID-19 shutdown. As you see from her parents' testimonial Kandyce misses her connection to ECHO and all that it offers. We need your help to make sure that once the restrictions are lifted ECHO will be here for Kandyce and the other participants. Go to: www.echoworks.org/donors to make your donation. Kandyce, and all of us at ECHO, thank you in advance. #artist

Follow along throughout the 24-hours to see how ECHO is doing to meet our goals and raise funds for needs right here at home. WE'RE ASKING EVERYONE TO GIVE FROM 9 A.M. TO 10 A.M. SO WE CAN WIN THAT HOUR'S MONETARY PRIZE! As a reminder, the Rotary Club of Dulles International Airport has pledged to match gifts up to $10,000. Your impact will be doubled!

Enjoy simple, cost effective and visible advertising while doing good. For information contact Gregg Robinson at [email protected] or (571) 707-8255.

Give Choose is just one week away - and early giving has begun! We’re asking our community to please help us in this time of need. Although participants will be returning soon, ECHO is still facing unique challenges: 1) Attendance will not be at 100% day one, therefore funding based on headcount will be down 2) Reimbursement from government sources to ECHO will likely still be delayed by two months. We are fighting to get through summer until we get back to “normal” – whatever that will be! Please consider a donation to help us through this COVID-19 crisis by scheduling your donations at www.givechoose.org/echo. #givechoose2020

In order to endure the revenue loss from participants staying at home during this crisis, your donation would be invaluable.

Imagine you a person with a significant disability, and every day you have a safe, clean and productive place to go. This place (ECHO) picked you up at your home, brought you to a place of employment or to its facility for training or day support. What if that safe space disappeared? Due to stay at home orders the number of participants in our program has been reduced dramatically, drastically reducing our funding. WE NEED YOUR HELP…TO HELP THOSE MOST IN NEED.

Urgent ECHO COVID-19 Appeal

Friends of ECHO, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced ECHO to temporarily close its doors. The absence of participants has resulted in a significant reduction in funding. We turn to you for vital support to ensure we are here when this crisis passes. Please visit: www.echoworks.org/donors to make a special gift in ECHO’s time of need.

03/25/2020

After careful consideration ECHO will continue the partial closure through Wednesday April 1, 2020. ECHO will re-evaluate this decision and announce any changes by 5:00 PM on Wednesday, April 1, 2020. ECHO will continue to operate Group Supported Employment for the sites that are open. No onsite support will be offered for closed sites. Individual Supported Employment services will also be provided as directed by DARS.
We appreciate your support, understanding and cooperation in this is rapidly changing environment as ECHO strives to provide services to our participants, maintain health and safety for our participants, staff, and community, all while navigating the financial pressures this crisis is creating.

ECHO update on COVID-19 - March 18, 2020

With attendance levels at 23%, ECHO has made the decision to close all day support programs (LIFE & Medically Fragile) effective 03/18/2020 at 4:30pm due to cautiousness surrounding the Covid-19 situation. We will continue to monitor the situation and we will reevaluate our plans on 03/25/2020. Currently we plan on reopening on Thursday 03/26/2020 at 8:30am.

At this time, ECHO’s Group Supported Employment (GSE) and Individual Supported Employment (ISE) programs will stay open. Group Supported Employment will be open on a limited basis. This is based on continuing to provide services and supports at the community worksites that are still open. If an individual currently attends the ECHO GSE program and wants to continue to work, they can continue to come in and we will support them at one of our community worksites. If you have already informed us of your absence in this program and provided a return date, we will follow that date. If you decide to come back before the scheduled return date, you need to contact the program director to make arrangements. The ISE program will continue to operate as usual.

ECHO will continue to provide transportation services to the individuals in the GSE program that are coming in to work. The busses will run on a modified schedule as we are combining some bus routes. Please check with your driver for specifics on pick-up and drop-off times. If a family/group home/caregiver already decided to keep an individual home and you communicated a return date to us, we will not send the bus to your house before the return date. If you choose to return before the already scheduled return date, you need to contact your program director as well as the director of transportation.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
