ECS Foundation Welcomes Twelve Oaks Senior Living

How Giving Back Moves Lives Forward

At Episcopal Communities & Services (ECS), charitable service is at the heart of everything we do. Episcopal Communities & Services Foundation, originally The Sophie Miller Foundation, was created in 2008 to provide charitable care for residents through programs and services that enrich the physical, spiritual, emotional and social well-being of seniors.

Since 1923, we have helped people in the Los Angeles area live with security, dignity and hope. In 2004, we expanded into Orange County.  Over the years, the faces have changed and the needs have become more complex. However, our commitment to helping seniors remains the same.
