Ecumen Giving

In these unprecedented and uncertain times, what we know is this: Ecumen remains committed to the safety of our residents, team members, and communities. You can join us in supporting our COVID-19 preparedness and prevention efforts. A gift of any amount will help Ecumen further support those among us most impacted with protective gear, resources for social connectedness, and more. Your generosity has a direct and immediate impact. Thank you!
