Ending Community Homelessness Coalition (ECHO)

In January 2024, the WellSky Foundation announced it has granted $50,000 to the Ending Community Homelessness Coalition (ECHO).  

The grant enables ECHO to continue working with its network of organizations to connect approximately 2,000 people a year to permanent housing paired with individual supportive services. Since 2017, ECHO has helped more than 10,000 people obtain housing by providing training and technical assistance to housing and social service providers and managing a centralized system connecting individuals with the housing and services they need to obtain quality affordable housing. 

“ECHO is so grateful to the WellSky Foundation for their generous funding, which will assist us in carrying out our core functions,” said Matthew Mollica, Executive Director of ECHO. 

“This grant helps us execute our vision to ensure everyone in Austin, Texas, and Travis County has access to the housing of their choice that provides a foundation for optimal health, success, and stability
