Early in 2006 Charles Barber, the Director of Human Services for Erie County, proposed to the Erie County Executive and Erie County Council the creation of a new corporation that would promote a conflict free care management system. On June 11, 2006 Erie County council enacted an ordinance calling for the establishment of a private not-for-profit corporation to be named Erie County Care Management, Incorporated (ECCM).
The primary focus of the Corporation is to promote the integration of community services into a seamless system of care for any child or adult in need of services. Funding comes from the federal, state, and county governments.
Building independence one empowered consumer at a time.
