"As someone who has a family, I love how ECAC supports the idea of keeping family first. It is a relief to know that when life happens, we have a work family that sees us through. Our motto is "Reaching Kids, Supporting Families." This extends within the walls of our building to the employes and their families as well. ECAC is an incredible place! "

"ECAC has had my heart since day one. From interning at ECAc in 2016 to getting my degree and becoming an employee in 2019, I truly believe with all my heart that ECAC is the best in the ABA field. It is highly reinforcing to work in such a caring and supportive atmosphere where the entire staff is there to guide you and encourage you every day. My heart will always be with ECAC." -Hannah

"One of the best feelings is having a work place that genuinely cares not just about their clients, but the employees/coworkers as well. ECAC is just that! The family atmosphere makes going to work every day feel more like a privilege than a task! There is truly no greater feeling than enjoying your work place while also helping children and their families grow more and more every day." - Haleigh
