Chief Executive Officer
(785) 242-7450 ext. 7600
Crystal Anderson, ECKAN’s CEO, started with the agency in October 2013 as the Director of Case Management, was later named Assistant CEO and then CEO on June 1, 2019.
“My primary focus is at the local level in our service counties, but we are also involved on a state and national level – which can have huge impacts,” Anderson told The Ottawa Herald upon assuming the CEO position. “And honestly, one of the best things about this agency is a dedication to serving others....dedication that is demonstrated by our staff, our board of directors and our amazing volunteers. I was able to see from day one that ECKAN is firmly centered on serving its community and supporting folks on their journey toward self-sufficiency. What I enjoy most is helping folks find new strategies to overcome barriers standing in the way of their success.”
