Episcopal Community Services
DIGNITY. RESPECT. INTEGRITY. COMPASSION.
Episcopal Community Services (ECS) has provided essential services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness in San Francisco since 1983, utilizing a holistic approach that addresses the multiple causes leading to homelessness. This past year, we served more than 13,000 people, 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.
Tickets are now on sale for the 2023 CHEFS Gala and 40th Anniversary celebrations!
We look forward welcoming you to an elegant evening with music, drinks, hors d'oeuvres, live and silent auctions, seated dinner and more as we draw inspiration from the stories of CHEFS students and graduates who have overcome adversity and transformed their lives.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available. For more details on the event, please visit chefsgalasf.org.
