Winds of Change
Publication Date: February 2016
In September of 1989, Hurricane Hugo tore through South Carolina, leaving a trail of destruction in its path. But in its wake also came hope, courage, and cooperation. In Charleston, the hurricane uncovered the plight of the poor and impoverished, and in response, a local priest led his church and community leaders to form ECCO, East Cooper Community Outreach.
In The Winds of Change, Executive Director Jack Little tells the story of ECCO, from its modest beginnings to its current state as a model for providers of basic needs, health services, and empowerment in a one-stop shop. You’ll learn about the challenges in working with both a rural and an urban population, why it is our responsibility to help others, and how you can help in your own community. Whether you’re a nonprofit, church or community leader, or just someone who wants to help others, Jack’s words will inspire you to get involved―to create a brighter and better tomorrow for those who have little hope in doing so!
