“Our partnership with ECCF has made it considerably easier for us to really focus on our mission of helping women and girls live better lives. The Foundation not only provides administrative support and effective management of our assets, but their focus on making a local impact has been a great fit for our vision of sustainable change right here in Essex County.”
