Mission Statement


Episcopal Community Services (ECS) helps 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.

Description


Founded 24 years ago, ECS strives to ?help homeless and very low-income people obtain the housing, jobs, shelter, and essential services needed to prevent and end homelessness.? This past year, ECS provided nearly 6,000 people with a continuum of programs: shelters, permanent housing, adult education, job training, and senior services. ECS?s shelters provided 4,468 individuals with a clean, safe place to sleep, two hot meals a day, hygiene facilities, a small storage locker, and clean clothes. ECS?s Canon Kip Senior Center provided daily hot lunches, recreational and educational programming and other services to 1,046 extremely low-income seniors, one quarter of them homeless. Our 11 supportive housing sites provided permanent housing to 828 formerly homeless individuals, as well as case management, mental health services, job counseling, numerous peer support groups and community activities. ECS?s Canon Barcus family housing, the main site of the Skills Center, also provided a childcare center, an on-site clinic, a children?s therapy room, and other family services. The primary population we serve are homeless and formerly homeless individuals in the Tenderloin and South of Market areas of San Francisco. Last year, 36% of our clients were African American, 30% Caucasian, 12% Asian/Pacific Islander, 12% Latino, 1% Native American, and 8% other or unknown. Roughly 22% of our clientele are youth or young adults between the ages of 18-34, another 20% are seniors, and the rest are between the ages of 35 and 59.
