Housing Department Practicum and Internships

ECS’s Permanent Supportive Housing Department, serving formerly homeless, low income adults, and families, offers opportunities for practicum students and interns in the fields of mental health and social work. Interns and trainees will provide individual psychotherapy, supportive counseling, and will have the opportunity to co-facilitate group therapy and Creative Arts groups to clients residing in permanent housing. Students will receive weekly individual and group supervision by licensed clinicians, and will have training opportunities within the organization.

For housing internships, please email a resume and cover letter to Scott Ecker, secker@ecs-sf.org

Housing internships are unpaid.
