The Emergency Children's Help Organization

About Us

Emergency Children’s Help Organization “ECHO” is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization established for

the purpose of providing financial assistance to children and their families during a time of need. ECHO is comprised of dedicated caring people whose sole purpose is to brighten a family’s path during a difficult journey. Our hope is that our assistance will make a difference to improve their current circumstances both financially and spiritually.

ECHO’s founder, Sebastian Angelico, has assembled a diverse Board of Directors, whose unquestionable

motivation and agenda is to help children. Sebastian has always supported charitable organizations ranging from those helping children to those helping the elderly. His vision for ECHO was borne from his desire to help children who lack the necessary resources to receive proper medical assistance or who may be battling a living emergency. “When I learn of a child who is in need, I believe ECHO will be able to help”. “We hear…We care…We share!”
