Seniors Bryan Min, Patrick Liang, and Sebastian Le took to the streets of San Francisco to be of service to many homeless and low-income people, supporting the efforts of the Episcopal Community Services (ECS) of San Francisco. ECS provides essential services to homeless San Franciscans utilizing a holistic approach that addresses the multiple causes leading to homelessness. Bryan, Patrick, and Sebastian described their project, and what it taught them: "At ECS, we plated food, served food, and cleaned the dining area. We learned that joining the service center was not just about serving people food, it was also about the community and bonds that were formed. ECS completely changed our impression of what it meant to serve people, and what it meant to create a positive and joyful community." The organization serves more than 7,000 people a year, every day and every night, to obtain the housing, jobs, shelter, and essential services to prevent and end homelessness.
