The Proctor Dealerships, which consists of Proctor Acura, Proctor Honda and Proctor Subaru, are proud to play an active role in bettering our community through a variety of ways.

 

Through our Community Window Project, The Proctor Dealerships are teaming up with local organizations each quarter to 

help spread awareness about their mission and to assist in fundraising for their cause. In each of our dealerships, visitors will find a unique window display, curated by our  community partner to showcase their mission and community impact.

About Emergency Care Help Organization, Inc:

Since 1981, ECHO Outreach Ministries puts faith into action by serving people in crisis and poverty in Leon County. ECHO was started by Toni Tran, who chose the name with the idea that those who have received love and blessings from the Lord would in turn share, or “ECHO” love and blessings with those in need in their own communities. ECHO has grown into the largest Christian human services agency in Tallahassee, directly assisting thousands of people each year in our community.


ECHO offers professional services through programs providing emergency relief and family sustainability to impoverished Leon County residents, and the homeless. ECHO’s clients are served through 4 programs: Emergency Resources, Family Services, Housing Assistance, and The Furniture Bank of Tallahassee. With a small staff and a large volunteer base, their programs are designed to assist people in their efforts to become independent, productive, and stable. ECHO believe that encouragement, planning, and hope will be the impetus for lasting change and those who live under the burden of poverty can rise above it and lead fuller and more productive lives.

Support ECHO Featured Initiative:
Furniture Bank of Tallahassee

ECHO’s free furniture program has been a critical component of the wide range of services provided. Initially considered as one of several forms of assistance provided to our Emergency Resources Program clients, the Furniture Bank of Tallahassee (FBT) now operates as a standalone program in the ECHO suite of solutions and has recently established its own presence as an unduplicated resource in the community.


From emergency cases of fire and flood destruction, to furnishing their Family Services Program and Rapid Rehousing clients’ homes as they move to permanent residences, FBT remains the only free source of furniture in Tallahassee. Housed in a centrally-located warehouse in Tallahassee, FBT also partners with their peer human services agencies to receive and distribute gently-used donated items through a collaborative referral network.

Who They Serve:

• Families/Individuals recovering from flood or fire
• Formerly homeless clients moving from transitional housing into their own home

• Families fostering or adopting through Florida Department of Children & Families who do not have required furniture

• Elderly/Disabled client requiring furniture for medical need or movement into long-term or assisted living housing

• Veterans in a rapid re-housing program

• Mentors are matched one-to-one with students in kindergarten, first, or second grades
• Mentors report during the after-school setting for one hour a week during the school year

• Mentors choose the school and the day that best fit their schedule

• Mentors utilize a curriculum created by LCS District and UWBB that is tailored to children’s reading needs

• Mentors present each student with a brand new book every week

• Mentors receive training from UWBB and the school district (includes background screening)
