ECHO (Emergency Care Health Organization) puts faith into action by serving people in crisis and poverty. ECHO provides a full range of services that restore individual and family self-sufficiency and feelings of self-worth.  ECHO offers Leon County residents and the homeless professional services through programs providing emergency relief, job skill development, and family sustainability. With a small staff, and a large volunteer base, our programs are designed to assist people in their efforts to become independent, productive, and stable.

Habitat for Humanity, Tallahassee

A nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry that seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses alongside our homeowner (partner) families.

Alternative Christmas Market

Our Alternative Christmas Market each December brings together a number of charitable organizations and those in our community who wish to provide “alternative” Christmas gifts to loved ones by donating to one or more of the charities in honor of the alternative gift recipients. Many people enjoy giving and receiving these “gifts” that will help others . We also have a shop with free-trade and handmade gifts from local and international artisans, for tangible gift-giving as well.
