Studies document that supportive housing is far more cost-effective than the use of high-end emergency room care, institutionalization, jail, and other ways of treating chronically homeless individuals. It also improves participants’ quality of life and helps them to end the vicious cycle of homelessness in their lives.

ECS is a leader in San Francisco's plan to create more supportive housing for homeless individuals and families, having built the first new-construction supportive housing facility in the city. Our supportive housing includes on-site social, health, and employment services, particularly important for people with multiple barriers to successful, independent living. At all of the sites, we offer case management, mental health services, job counseling and access to adult educational and vocational services.

In collaboration with Mercy Housing, we provide support services to 50 formerly homeless families at a brand-new facility. In addition to these sites, we manage or provide support services at several single-room occupancy (SRO) residential hotels for formerly homeless single adults.

To apply for ECS supportive housing, you must be directed to us by the City of San Francisco’s Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing, having been found eligible for a City program. For more information, please visit the DHSH website or give them a call at (415) 252-3232.
