In February of 1999, Ely Chapman Education Foundation Inc.
was founded for the purpose of providing enrichment and
reinforcement activities for the youth of the Mid-Ohio Valley.
In June, the S.U.N.S.H.I.N.E. Learning Station (SLS), an after
school program for students from grades 1 through 5, was adopted
from St. Luke’s Lutheran Church. ECEF purchased the Ely Chapman
education Center in July of 1999.
