"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! "

"One of my favorite things is when I’ve been working really hard with a kid on learning a new skill(like saying “go” for the first time), and they finally master it. It’s like you can see the moment everything clicks into place and you’re just so excited because you were able to help with that small part of their life. Little moments like that make me love coming to work everyday!"
