ENDING HOMELESSNESS BEGINS BY GIVING SOMEONE A HOME

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.
