ECC LogoFor nearly 60 years, God has used this ministry to transform thousands of lives in the Diocese of Chicago. Today, this life-changing social outreach is accomplished through ECCS’ support of its ministry partners and, increasingly, through its New Ventures and Capacity Building initiatives. Over the next two months, a series of short articles will help you understand this organization which is a not-for-profit organization serving agencies affiliated with the Episcopal Church. It is governed by an independent board of trustees and the Bishop of Chicago is an ex-officio member of the board.

You may find more information about Episcopal Charities on their website, www.eccsonline.net. Julie Nelligan and Beth Petti are current board members and would be happy to discuss Episcopal Charities with you if you have further questions.
