ECCO CEO Jack Little Launches Book That Gives Back

Posted By SCANPO, Monday, February 8, 2016

Having created and implemented outreach programs in mobile home parks, prisons and even skid row motels, Jack Little's experience gave him insight on what could happen at ECCO.

"I had an epiphany after being with ECCO a little over a year. When I walked in the lobby where our clients wait to be served I recognized many despondent faces who had come for help. This morning, I saw them in a different light."

After 10 years leading ECCO, Executive Director, Jack Little, is proud to announce the launch of his book: The Winds of Change: How One Organization Turned a Hurricane Into a Better World.

With a donation of at least $25, you will receive a signed copy of Little's book. All proceeds go directly to support ECCO's financial literacy and education efforts, specifically to provide matching IDA funds for our clients who are actively saving for the future.

What is IDA? After completing the required financial education training, low-income individuals can open an Individual Development Account (IDA) to buy their first home, pursue post-secondary education, or start a small business. By demonstrating responsible fiscal savings habits*, participants have the opportunity to build their assets and advance their path to financial independence.

*IDA participants must save a minimum of $25 for six consecutive months to qualify for the match, and can get up to $1,000 of their savings matched 3:1 by ECCO and a grant from the Department of Health and Human Services.
