ORGANIZATION: Episcopal Community Services of San Francisco

Importance: Access to activities to keep busy is critical for many people sheltered in place. For our seniors and clients with compromised immune systems the need to stay inside is heightened and isolation is a prominent concern. Help adults combat social isolation while staying safe indoors by creating custom activity books to keep them entertained

Description: Combine items like crossword puzzles, word searches, coloring pages or trivia questions and compile them into one 15-20 page book. Mail-in or drop-off coloring and activity books for seniors and others experiencing homelessness. These books can be created from online sources or made of your own design. Feel free to get creative!

If you can, we'd love for you to also send in art and coloring supplies. We have very limited resources.

For questions and more information, please email Andra Steinbach @ ASteinbach@ecs-sf.org

Mission Statement

Our mission is to help homeless and very low-income people every day and night obtain the housing, jobs, shelter and essential services each person needs to prevent and end homelessness.

Description

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.
The complex nature of homelessness calls for a multi-faceted solution. ECS serves adults and children through a range of services, including the City’s Adult Coordinated Entry (ACE), supportive housing, employment and education programs, healthy aging, information and referral resources, reentry housing and support services, interim housing, and behavioral health services.
