Recent ECF Facts

With more than 30 years of experience, we have developed a proven formula for delivering services. From our grassroots inception to our statewide reach today, we have provided free assistance to nearly 2,000 families in need.

  • In 2016 ECF served 204 families all over New Jersey.
  • Caseworkers made 516 home visits and provided an additional 1,572 hours of counseling, at no cost to the families.
  • Regional Centers provided $166,960 in food and material assistance to families and collected and distributed $16,530 in gift cards (an incredible $12,615 more than last year)!
  • 2,775 bags of groceries were delivered to families by volunteers from our four Regional Centers.
  • 345 birthday bags were sent to ECF kids and their siblings.
  • 327 holiday gift wishes were filled for ECF kids and their siblings, worth more than $49,000.
  • We distributed $6,580 of emergency funding to families in dire financial situations (over $4,500 more than in 2015), helping with expenses such as rent, phone service, medical equipment, gas and tolls, utility bills to prevent shut-off of services, and reimbursement for meals for parents who are with their child in the hospital.
  • Dedicated volunteers logged in an amazing 3,819 hours of invaluable help to the organization and ECF kids and families. We can’t do it without you!

Thank you to everyone who made this possible!

ECF has helped me tremendously with the support of my Caseworker, Eileen, as well as the volunteers with the holiday wish lists and in making sure Ty had a wonderful birthday every year. And when times were really hard, ECF helped out with meals and food. I don’t think I would have made it through without having to talk to someone who understood. Thank you ECF

Theresa Godfrey, Ty’s mom
