Fire Recovery Contingency Campaign


A massive fire made its way through ECFA’s building at 1530 N. Main St., Wheaton, Illinois on May 26th. The fire inspectors determined it was caused by an electrical failure in the wiring above the ceiling of the children’s playroom.

The building was severely damaged from fire, smoke, and water. At the very least, it will need to be completely gutted and restored, which is expected to take several months to a year. We are most thankful that no one was injured in the fire.

The ECFA staff has been temporarily relocated to two different offices; one at 213 W. Wesley, Wheaton and one at 4614 Main Street, Lisle. Our insurance carrier is expected to cover some of the costs to restore our building and replace items lost in the fire. However, an undetermined amount of expense will be the responsibility of the agency.

Those wishing to help ECFA defray some of our additional costs and continue to provide needed services to children and families can donate to ECFA at our mailing address, 1530 N. Main Street, Wheaton, IL 60187 or online by clicking on the PayPal button below:
