Bridging the Communications Gap for Immigrants and Refugees in Minnesota

Our Partners

Since we began, ECHO has been supported by our founding partners in local public health and safety agencies, nonprofit organizations serving limited English proficiency populations and educational institutions.

ECHO Partners play a key role in our work in many ways including providing critical insight into community health and safety needs, financial contributions, in-kind support and community outreach services.  Dozens of partners across the state promote ECHO resources and materials on a daily basis.  In an emergency, ECHO partners work with us to spread culturally appropriate, multi-language emergency messages directly to the communities who need them most. Partners automatically receive ECHO annual DVDs, in each of the languages of populations the partner organization serves. 

To learn more about becoming an ECHO partner, contact us at info@echominnesota.org, call 651.789.4342 or click to fill out the online form today. 

We thank our partners for working with us to make a difference in our communities:
