Helping Families Ensure Their Children Enter School Ready to Learn

Help us honor Connie Stophel’s retirement.


In honor of Connie Stophel’s retirement, we have created a special fund for the benefit of our ECS Westside Center, located at 2648 W. 5th Street, Jacksonville, to support our program. Our Westside Center is close to Connie’s heart as she was instrumental in its inception, design, and construction in 2010-2011, serving 48 children.

Our new classrooms, which are slated to open in 2024, will enable us to serve an additional 25 children. Donors will be publicly recognized for their gifts in Connie’s honor.
