They who recognize God’s providence and fidelity to His people are dedicated to living out His covenant among ourselves and those children they serve, with absolute respect and unconditional love. That commitment calls us to serve suffering children of the street, and to protect and safeguard all children. Just as Christ in His humanity is the visible sign of God’s presence among His people, so their efforts together in the covenant community are a visible sign that effects the presence of God, working through the Holy Spirit among ourselves and their kids.

ECS programs serve over 2000 children and adults each year. ECS St. Barnabas Mission for homeless women and their children serves about 150 families each year, offering enhanced shelter services including nutrition, after-school and early-childhood education, comprehensive case managment and more. The Children and Family Services department includes outcome-oriented foster care, kinship care, and family preservation services. The ECS FAST Program provides permanent housing and case management to chronically homeless families. ECS Home Care helps seniors and the disabled remain safe, healthy, and in their own homes. Other ECS programs include workshops for parents, children, and teens, adult literacy, and the ECS Beacon after-school program in the Feltonville section of Philadelphia.Program:ECS St. Barnabas MissionBudget: $1,512,388Category: HousingPopulation Served: Homeless Program Description: ECS St. Barnabas Mission provides shelter, case management and related services to homeless women and their children. The Mission maintained high quality service and met the diverse needs of families presenting mental health, substance abuse, poverty and other challenges. During the 2009 fiscal year, 143 female-headed families (including 190 children) found a safe haven at ECS St. Barnabas.    One thing most families have in common is young children – half of all the children served were age ftheir or younger. Most families include just one or two children. The majority of mothers at the Mission were under 30, while a substantial minority of 22% were between the ages of 40 and 64. Intensive case management at the Mission helps families address economic and personal barriers to obtaining housing. This year, 64% of families demonstrated improved ability to handle common life issues and received at least one award for improvement in upkeep of living areas, parenting behaviors, hygiene or participation in the savings program. While just under a quarter of families remain in shelter for only a few days or weeks, most residents stay for one to nine months. Of the 112 families who left the Mission this year, 73% moved into safe, stable housing. In confidential surveys, 75% of residents reported a positive experience with residential assistance at the Mission. In order to meet ECS’s goal of 90% client satisfaction, ECS St. Barnabas is changing new resident intake procedures and training staff in developing positive customer service relationships, with a focus on time and stress management. At any given time, ECS St. Barnabas is home to about 100 women and children, resulting in significant wear and tear. ECS continually maintains and improves the facility inside and out. This year, the agency made improvements to the exterior, including the removal of an abandoned building adjacent to the playground and installation of a security fence. Grants from The Western Association of Ladies for Relief and Employment of the Poor and the Falconhead Foundation supported the replacement of aging kitchen equipment to maintain sanitation and efficiency in a facility that serves three meals a day, 365 days a year.  ECS St. Barnabas operates under a contract with the Philadelphia Office of Supportive Housing, which provides all resident referrals.
