Give Today


For the health and safety of our residents and employees, Volunteers are currently restricted from visiting Exceptional Care for Children. In lieu of interacting directly with our residents here at ECC, we are currently offering Virtual Volunteer opportunities.

For an updated list of Virtual Volunteer opportunities, please reach out to Emily Holcombe.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
