The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe.

Operating under its mission of serving God by serving those in need,ECS provides comprehensive social services to low-income families and individuals. ECS ensures each client is served without regard for ethnic background, culture, gender, age, sexual orientation or religious creed. The common denominator linking clients served by ECS is poverty. Since its inception, ECS has served those who are hurt and neglected, victims of abuse, or suffering the consequences of poor choices. More oftentimes than not, clients represent those who are ostracized by their families, peers and by society in general. Clients suffer from poor self-esteem, lack the belief that they can be loved and accepted, and see only despair and hopelessness in their future. Episcopal Community Services provides programs and services that build a bridge to a brighter future.
