Generations of Expertise

ECS has been providing housing, services, and healthcare to older adults of all faiths in greater Los Angeles since 1923. As a nonprofit organization, an important part of our work is giving back to the community.

Our mission began with Deaconess Sophie Miller who helped establish the first Episcopal Home in Alhambra, CA in 1923, for the purpose of caring for widows of Episcopal priests. She did it by gathering donations, literally one dime at a time.

One hundred years ago, compassion and advocacy for seniors was something of a progressive, if not radical concept. Today, ECS is a recognized leader, offering some of the best retirement communities in Southern California. Our Nonprofit Promise and Mission and Values guide us each day, helping ECS to deliver the choice, freedom, and flexibility that all seniors deserve.

The art of possibility

Our experience has taught us a few simple yet profound truths about how to keep your edge as you age. Significantly, they are relevant at every stage of your journey and include:

  • Holistic, proactive health and wellness
  • Opportunities for continuous learning
  • Activities and events that foster social connection

Together, these truths form the foundation of our approach to Creative Living, helping seniors to be their best and enjoy all that life has to offer.

The strength of community

As part of our mission, ECS is active in the greater community, working with partners to provide senior services and housing for those in need. Everyone deserves dignity, respect, and advocacy, and our Life Plan communities provide our nonprofit organization the resources and Financial Strength to help deliver on our promise to those we serve.
