Downtown Ecumenical Services Council is a group of area churches that have come together as a charitable organization to provide help to those in need within the community. This assistance can be to help with needs such as food, clothing and financial assistance. Financial Assistance is provided to help with paying rent or utility payments. This assistance is very limited and is dependent upon available funds. When approved and available, it is usually offered in conjunction with other assistance the applicant has received as it is usually given in small amounts. They serve those in need in Clay, Duval, and Nassau counties. No walk-ins are accepted for financial aid.
Mission Statement: DESC seeks to proclaim the love of Jesus Christ by meeting the needs of people in emergency situations or experiencing poverty.

Director is rude no caring and lacks the task of following up after a call was missed. I am in direct need for rental assistance She called one time I missed the call went up to office 2 twice was told not to come back. This is a disgrace to the meaning of charity there is nobody in waiting rooms which means they are not helping nobody with all the civil funding, a disgrace.
