Serving the communities of Altadena, Arcadia, Azusa, Baldwin Park, Bradbury, Duarte, Irwindale, Monrovia, Pasadena, Sierra Madre and South Pasadena.
We help neighbors in crisis attain self-sufficiency by partnering with the community and using our resources wisely to provide vital support services with love and dignity.
Foothill Unity Center, Inc. envisions a community where. . .
All have their basic needs met, including the need to give
All get the necessary support to become self-sufficient
All are treated with love and dignity ... all the time
We provide critical support, in the form of food, heath services and crisis referrals to very low-income famlies and individuals in crisis. We work with other agencies to provide long-term shelter, counseling, medical, educational, employment and other assistance.
Foothill Unity Center, Inc., has been serving low-income familes and those in crisis for 31 years. Founded in 1980 in a borrowed church closet to provide food to a few hungry famlies, the Center has become the major source of food, health services and crisis assistance for over 4,000 low-income families in eleven San Gabriel Valley cities: Altadena, Pasadena, South Pasadena, Arcadia, Sierra Madre, Monrovia, Duarte, Azusa, Baldwin Park and Irwindale. In 2008, it was federally designated the Community Action Agency for the Foothill Area.
The Center acts as a lifeline for very low income individuals and families who are struggling to survive. Clients are often unemployed, employed at wages too low to provide for their famlies, on welfare, or facing a temporary crisis. It also serves seniors, homeless, disabled, emancipated foster youth, victims of domestic violence and students on limited incomes. 38% of Center clients are children.
