Serving Those In Need

Emergency Shelter

 

Edgerton Community Outreach (ECO) provides motel vouchers to homeless individuals and families when funds are available. Most often up to two weeks of lodging is provided while a more permanent housing option is sought. The majority of funding for this program is provided by State Shelter Subsidy Funds, the Salvation Army, and Thrift Store revenue. In 2012 ECO provided shelter nights for homeless persons. ECO works with homeless shelters in Rock County including the House of Mercy and the Gifts Men’s Shelter to avoid duplication of services.
