At East Central Kansas Economic Opportunity Corporation (ECKAN), we connect our neighbors with housing, food, childcare, and other resources to make way to a better life. What we do provides so much more than services, it’s hope for the future. We are the best resource for needs in our communities because we are part of our communities; we know the challenges, and opportunities because we are on the ground every day, lifting up our neighbors where their needs are, no matter who they are. Even though everyone is different, we all have the same basic needs: a safe place to live, a dependable supply of food, and ways to grow and flourish as humans. ECKAN provides all this and more for our neighbors in East Central Kansas. We’re a one-stop-shop for resources to leave poverty behind forever.
