Friday was a great day at ECCR, we hosted our first COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic with Walgreens! Residents, staff and volunteers received their first vaccine. According to ECCR CEO, Daryl Rogers, "It has been a long year and receiving the vaccinations was a big relief to family members, guardians, residents and employees. At ECCR, we are thrilled to finally turn this corner and we look forward to happier and healthier days ahead,".
Congressman Josh Gottheimer; Paul Aronsohn, NJ Ombudsman for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities; and Christine Bakter, Associate Director, Office of the Ombudsman stopped by the clinic to lend their support.
Everyone enjoyed a treat from the Wicked Waffle Truck after they received their vaccine.

Embrace. Educate. Empower. Love Life.

January 20th is the International Day of Acceptance.

The International Day of Acceptance is a day dedicated to social acceptance of disability and to honor the late Annie Hopkins, founder of 3E Love and creator of the International Symbol of Acceptance.

Acceptance is created from an Empowered movement that Educates others to Embrace diversity and Love Life by seeing beyond abilities.

Congratulations to Steven Schanzenbach!!

Steve has worked at ECCR for 41 years in Housekeeping!
Steve is a great asset to ECCR, he is always willing and able to help out and lend a hand. Steve never complains and always conducts himself in a professional and respectful manner. Steve cares about every one of our residents and it shows in how he responds to their needs. Everything Steve does is with the residents well-being in mind. Steve takes pride in a job well done and does his best with each and every task he takes on. For all his years here, all he has done and for his heart of gold Steve should be recognized as EOTM.

Congratulations Steven!

Eastern Christian Children's Retreat – Eastern Christian Children's Retreat

Eastern Christian Children's Retreat has been providing exceptional programs and services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities since Dec 4, 1972. Over the years our programs have grown and expanded to meet the changing needs of our residents. We now operate 14 locations in Bergen and Passaic Counties. One thing that has never changed is the unconditional love that the staff gives to every resident. The staff, residents and volunteers have become a family.
We could not do all the wonderful work that we do without your help and support. Please remember us on Giving Tuesday.

Former employee It is with a heavy heart that I inform the Prospect Park, NJ community of the departure of former Board of Education commissioner and Building Inspector Paul Jay Birch to be with the Lord. Our condolences to his family. Flags will be flown at half staff in his honor. Services will be held on December 30. Details to follow.
