ECHO is a Christian charity that was founded in 1984. Our mission is to provide the people of the Eastern Dandenong Ranges with services they need to cope with the challenges of life. We provide support to youth and families through a range of programs, including facilitated playgroups, school chaplaincy, after school programs, food aid, no interest loans, and therapeutic horsemanship.
ECHO is committed to protecting children and young people and will not tolerate child abuse or harm. All staff and volunteers are required to abide by our Child Safe Policy.
We hope you enjoy browsing our site and we invite you to join us in providing care for those in need of support by making a tax deductible donation to ECHO Youth and Family Services or volunteering in one of our programs.
