DIGNITY. RESPECT. INTEGRITY. COMPASSION.

Episcopal Community Services (ECS) has provided essential services to homeless San Franciscans since 1982, utilizing a holistic approach that addresses the multiple causes leading to homelessness. We serve more than 7,000 people a year, guided by our mission to help homeless and very low-income people every day and every night obtain the housing, jobs, shelter, and essential services each person needs to prevent and end homelessness.

LIVED EXPERIENCES OF HOMELESSNESS

T.J.

Beginning again at the Minna Lee

“It's amazing what a person will do when they abandon dignity.  At the Minna Lee, I'm beginning to re-engage with society again. ”

Susan

A new outlook

“I'm looking forward to using this as a stepping stone to my future.”

Sabrina

Now has a place to call home

“I was tired of the streets, the difference is this place. They don’t give up on you.”
