For 160 years, ECH has cared for vulnerable children. Today, through quality programs, more than 200 staff members across St. Louis and Kansas City campuses are dedicated to preventing child abuse, treating emotional trauma and mental health issues, and providing aftercare and follow-up services.

During the 2017 fiscal year, ECH provided hope and healing to more than 1,400 children, youth, and families.

One example includes our Foster Care Case Managers placing 106 children and youth permanently in homes while 100% of families receiving services through our Family Solutions for Kids program, remained together following treatment.

Through our Early Education Center, 86% of the children achieved their developmental milestones, and from the ECH School, 89% of students increased their academic achievement in 2 of 4 areas. In addition to that impact, The Steppingstone Transitional Living Program served 74 homeless and at-risk youth by providing safe and stable housing, life skills training, employment and education planning, and fostering permanent connections for youth.
"My name is Rudy Hamilton. I am currently a college student minoring in leadership. I considered giving back (a few years ago) to families in the community by organizing a food drive. I decided to partner with ECH last year to organize it. The food drive benefited close to 100 families who utilize ECH's services and are currently in one of the programs. I've volunteered for the ECH agency over five years and became interested in leading a food drive while away at school. ECH has become a place for me volunteer, develop my leadership skills and to do something for others."
