Our Leadership
& Board of Directors

Meet our team

ECS serves people of all faiths and economic means. We are committed to charitable care and creating forward-thinking concepts that help seniors live inspired lives at the best retirement communities in Southern California.

You can see our core values at work at our Life Plan senior living communities—The Canterbury, The Covington and MonteCedro—in addition to the three affordable housing communities managed by our affiliate, Creative Housing & Services (CHS); as well as in our local partnerships and outreach programs.
