In 1923, Deaconess Sophie Miller created The Episcopal Home for the Aged to provide housing, services and health care to older people of all faiths – especially those facing hardship. That was nearly 100 years ago, during a time when compassion and advocacy for seniors was something of a progressive, if not radical, concept.
The strength of Deaconess Miller’s convictions still provides inspiration a century later and has evolved to become Episcopal Communities & Services (ECS); an organization that offers a broad spectrum of care and services to foster good health, fulfillment, and spiritual well-being in the lives of older adults.
Today, 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.
You can see our core values at work at our three Life Plan senior living communities—The Canterbury, The Covington and MonteCedro—in addition to the seven affordable housing communities managed by our affiliate, Creative Housing & Services (CHS); as well as in our local partnerships and outreach programs.
