Jack and Ruth Eckerd founded Eckerd Connects as a way to help 25 children and their families get a second chance. Since that groundbreaking day back in 1968, Eckerd Connects has grown to help hundreds of thousands of clients get the second chance that everyone deserves. Eckerd Connects is committed to not only providing the solutions that help struggling families thrive, but also sharing these solutions with others. At Eckerd Connects, we believe providers and agencies alike are strongest when they are working together rather than apart on ways to improve long-term outcomes.
Provide and share solutions that promote the well-being of children, young adults and families in need of a second chance. This is Eckerd Connects’ mission, Eckerd Connects’ lifework. It is the essence of almost five decades of caring, and it is the foundation of Eckerd Connects’ future.
Working at Eckerd Connects is more than just a job – it’s a way of life. Employees embrace the organization’s mission as their own, committed to helping vulnerable children and families nationwide.
When you work with us, you’ll become a part of something so much bigger than yourself. And that connectedness—that unity in purpose—is what makes Eckerd Connects an organization you can be proud of.
