Our son loves to attend the monthly dances held by EKO, especially the June Prom. Our son is our gold. We loan our gold to those we trust. Those that will teach him to be a better individual, and more responsible in the community. Our son has grown with EKO. EKO is to be trusted for your special needs individual.Dominguez Family — San Pedro, CA
It has been a rewarding experience working events for the EKPTO in the past five years. The time and effort I have put in is always eclipsed by the good feelings I take out.Jim S. — Volunteer
When Sean attends the EKO dances I know he will be there with many of his friends and other peers that he is familiar with. I have great comfort knowing that Sean will enjoy an evening out while socializing, dancing and having a snack in a very fun, well chaperoned and safe environment. We are so fortunate to have the EKO in our area!Kerry R.
EKO is a God send! As a parent of a special needs child it is difficult to find SoCal events that are appropriate and fun for our kids. I remember attending my first EKO dance and feeling apprehensive that “how could these kids have fun” and “no one will be dancing”… I was pleasantly surprised to see the entire crowd of kids jumping and dancing with excitement. You should see the rendition of “YMCA” that they do!Kevin L. — Parent
He went from a socially awkward teenager to a more socially perceptive and understanding young man. It is quite amazing to watch these kids interact, cheer each other on, socialize (!), sing, dance and just have fun. The EKO organization has so many loyal, longstanding, wonderful volunteers who support these well-organized, festive functions.Stephanie B. — Drake's Mom
