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.
