We'd like to give a big THANK YOU to Grand Boulevard for letting us participate in the Festival of Trees this year! Our lovely Christmas tree, decorated by the extremely talented Velia Lala, will be on display until Christmas!
It was another great turnout for our annual Children's Christmas Party. Thank you to Crosspoint Church in Niceville for hosting us. The families that attended all had a wonderful time!
We are so thankful to Debbie Hollis for all the amazing work she has done as our Clinical Supervisor for the past 15 years. We wish her a very happy retirement!
Meet Andrew! He is a son of one of our Adopt-A-Family sponsors. He was super excited because he helped his mom pick out the gifts for one of our families that they adopted. This little guy is learning the true meaning of Christmas early on in life!
We cannot thank The Village of Baytowne Wharf enough for their generous donation! They raised $5,000 for the ECCAC at their Baytowne Beer Festival and at the Sparkling Wine and Holiday Lights Festival!
A big THANK YOU to Joe and Cassie Freitas, they donated 96 new backpacks, socks, and underwear for our children!
Thank you to Team Sandestin for sponsoring nine of our families this year for Adopt-A-Family! Because of them and all of our other amazing sponsors, our children in need and their families will be able to have a Christmas this year!
Dr. Brodie Bowman and his team stepped up as Adopt-A-Family volunteers this year, and we are so thankful for all of their help this Christmas!
We give PetSmart two paws up! We'd like to thank them for donating tons of stuffed animals. Our children are going to love receiving these furry friends!
Thank you to the Northwest State College Pre Professional Education Association for creating a Christmas wonderland at our Niceville Center!
A special thank you to Board Member Tom Saffel for leading our Development Retreat. His guidance will help us to grow and leverage our resources to ensure services for our children!
