Ecker Center for Mental Health - Hope, Recovery and well Being

News & Information


Many thanks to all who helped make our 2018 Wishes for Wellness Brunch so successful. Special recognition goes out to the Holy Cross Marimba Ensemble (Chicago) and Elgin Country Club as well as major sponsors Nicor Gas and EFS Foundation.


Though it was a snowy April Sunday, a full-house ignored the weather and helped us raise a record amount to benefit the programs and services of Ecker Center. It was all made possible thanks to a cadre of devoted volunteers including Russ Matson, Bob Steffen, Ron Korte, Irena Grauzinis, and several Ecker staffers.  We also received helping hands from Aidan and Tommy Matson, Alyssa and Tristan Steffen, and the Watanabe girls – Addison, Avery and Lola.  Always great to see kids of all ages involved in helping others!


Our next event is November 10th – the 2018 Festival of Trees at St. Charles Country Club. Mark your calendars now! We have another great party planned!
