ECHO (Education Creates Hope and Opportunity) provides one-on-one, home- and school-based case-management services to pregnant and parenting teens. Our goal is to help these teens complete their high school education, either through a high school diploma or GED certificate. Teen parents who participate in ECHO are more likely to develop life skills that break the cycle of dependence. Case managers assist clients in setting their own goals and help them work toward reducing barriers such as child care, transportation, and other life circumstances that may prevent them from being successful in school—and in life. Currently, we offer services in Allen county.
