Student and Volunteer Success Stories

Brittany came to ECHO in need of emergency food. She had dropped out of school in the 10th grade because her family was constantly moving. She started attending the GED prep classes. She found it helpful to focus on one section of the test at a time. The instructors and volunteers were there to encourage her. She completed her GED after attending ECHO classes for 6 months. She now has a full time job and is applying to college.
