Welcome to the Elmhurst Children's Assistance Foundation website

Elmhurst Children's Assistance Foundation - ECAF's goal is to assist families who have a connection to, or reside in our community, where a child's life is impacted by a serious medical or disabling condition.  As unpaid medical expenses mount, the emotional impact on the family may seem overwhelming.

Through the community's generosity, Elmhurst Children's Assistance Foundation is able to provide these children with financial assistance and to let families know they are not alone.  All names and information provided from families in need are held confidential with ECAF.

The Elmhurst Children's Assistance Foundation has never been stronger or more committed to its mission as it continues to be another outstanding example of why Elmhurst is a very special place for families to live.


Enjoy a beautiful summer day on the links while assisting families in Elmhurst and honoring this year's ECAF's Friend of the Children, Susie Sands.

Susie Sands is well known throughout Elmhurst by her dedication to the United Community Concerns Association (UCCA), which is an Elmhurst-based volunteer program. She is also the President of the Elmhurst United Community Concerns. Susie was very instrumental in promoting the framework for this organization and has worked tirelessly over the years on the multitude of projects that are conducted by UCCA throughout the year.
