When walking through ECCO’s Client Eligibility process, local neighbors will need to complete a few forms to verify they live/work within our service area, state insurance and income status, and more. Below, you’ll find links to each of the needed forms, in PDF format. If you have any questions about any of the forms below, please call us at 843-849-9220 or reach us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ECCO's ROI Form
This form acknowledges that you, as a client, give ECCO permission to add the information you provide to CharityTracker – a shared, computerized record-keeping system that contains information about people experiencing a need for basic needs services and financial stability services, including but not limited to assistance with utility bills, medications, rent/mortgage payments, etc. Trident United Way administers CharityTracker on behalf of participating agencies in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties including ECCO.
Client Services Agreement
East Cooper Community Outreach staff, volunteers, partners, and students take pride in providing our services with compassion, collaboration, respect, and integrity. We strive to consistently demonstrate these core values. Clients are also asked to demonstrate the same values when interacting with members of the ECCO team. In the unlikely event, a client’s behavior is inconsistent with ECCO’s values, ECCO has the right to temporarily suspend services for a period of time. By signing this document, you acknowledge that you have read and understand ECCO’s Client Services Agreement.
Documentation of Physical Address Form
All ECCO services are available to those who live and work East of the Cooper River, with multiple services also available to neighbors living in the Tri-County communities. However, to begin the client eligibility process, we need to make sure you live within our service area.
