Foothill Unity Center, Inc., has been serving low-income families and those in crisis for 31 years. Founded in 1980 in a borrowed church closet to provide food to a few hungry families, 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 families, 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.
