Ending Homelessness Begins with Creating Homes and Stability

Episcopal Community Services of San Francisco helps homeless and very low-income people every day and every night obtain the housing, jobs, shelter and essential services that each person needs to prevent and end homelessness.

We assist over 8,300 homeless and low-income people annually; to each we give a hand up, not a hand-out. Proof that our services work: In our supportive housing, over 95% of formerly homeless tenants retain housing. Between 75%-85% of our CHEFS graduates secure jobs. Our programs for seniors and people with disabilities operate in 18 city neighborhoods and in 5 different languages. We are trusted as San Francisco’s largest provider of emergency shelter and shelter behavioral health services.

For 30 years, we have worked to enable those who are homeless or at risk regain their stability and dignity. Please join us in this life-saving effort.
