Opened in 2009, and named for Bishop William E. Swing, who initiated ECS's response to homelessness, ECS-owned Bishop Swing Community House is an 88,000 square foot development housing 134 formerly homeless men and women. Each studio unit is accessible or adaptable for persons with disabilities and includes a kitchenette and full bath. ECS's dedicated team of case managers and clinicians affords Bishop Swing residents the support they need to retain their housing in a warm community environment, allowing them to sustain increasingly healthy and independent lives.
Bishop Swing Community House is recognized as a LEED Silver building. In the United States and in a number of other countries around the world, LEED certification is the recognized standard for measuring building sustainability. Achieving LEED certification validates that a building project is truly "green."
