Target demographics: Very low income individuals and families in 11 cities in the north San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles County

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Help organize food in warehouse, assist with preparations for a special program like our back to school or holiday distribution

Programs: One main focus is to provide Family Food Program (groceries)to the low-income families and the homeless with love & dignity. In 2010, we distributed over 4.5 million tons of food to over 4,300 unduplicated families. Children of the very low-income are also a key focus. We have a "Back to School" program that provided over 1,700 needy children with new school clothes, new shoes,socks, underwear, haircuts, manicures, backpacks, art kits and age-appropriate school supplies. Our Health Services offer Vision and Dental Programs along with medical and pharmaceutical services for the homeless. Other Homeless Services provide emergency resources that include bag lunches, motel vouchers, referrals for counseling and drug and alcohol programs. Holiday Programs provide bountiful food boxes for  Thanksgiving and generous food boxes, new toys, clothing for children at the Holidays.

Mission:

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.

Results:
We recently launched a Health Services Department. Our first major project was providing free dental care to 100 children of low-income families in partnership with the School of Dentistry at theUniversisty of Southern California.

After diligent research and fact finding, I chose to make Foothill Unity Center one of two primary organizations I'd support (outside of of my church.) Foothill Unity Center has been in the community for 30 years and I've witnessed first-hand how they run their office, donation center and events. ... more »
