Ebenezer Community Outreach Center, Inc (ECOC)
As you enter Ebenezer, you are greeted with good morning and a smile. One can hear the hustle and bustle of tiny feet, little voices, crying and laughter. Upon entering one of the classrooms, you can see children playing with blocks, animals, dolls and writing their names all while listening to the Farmer in the Dell. This is the daily life of the happenings at the center.
Ebenezer, located in Huntington WV, is a mission project of the WV Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. It is ECOC’s philosophy to help children grow in their self-esteem as well as their relationships to others. As well as to empower individuals to conquer economic conditions, literacy and spiritual hopelessness.
On a daily basis, we serve approximately 100 low-income working individuals or families. We strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all those we serve.
Our current programs include: our state licensed childcare/after school program, Baby Bassinette, School Supplies, Christmas Angel, Family Enrichment Center, Clothing Closet, 4-H and an art program sponsored by the Huntington Museum of Art.
Your continued support helps provide a safe learning environment for children ages 2-12; gives parents a place to communicate with each other; gives children the opportunity to enjoy swimming, bowling, movies visits to local parks; visit local art museums and a hands-on interactive museum and to participate in a cheer/dance camp; and provide clothing to the community.
Nothing is more gratifying than a smile on a child’s face because he received a backpack full of school supplies; a simple hug from a parent for taking care of their children; a thank you note from a new mother who received a basket full of items to help with her new baby; or a Christmas card thanking individuals for being a sponsor for their children.
Our motto speaks for itself “Reaching Out To Others”
