DIGNITY. RESPECT. INTEGRITY. COMPASSION.

Episcopal Community Services (ECS) has provided essential services to homeless San Franciscans 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.
