"A fundamental concern for others in our individual and community lives would go a long way in making the world the better place we so passionately dream of."
~ Nelson Mandela
At EAC Network, making the world a better place starts right here at home, from the tip of Long Island to the boroughs of New York City. Home for EAC Network means serving over 70,000 of our most vulnerable neighbors, solving problems in times of crisis, and saving lives. 

· We help child victims of abuse overcome trauma.
· We mentor and secure permanent homes for youth in foster care.
· We treat those struggling with mental illness and addictions.
· We feed vulnerable, home-bound seniors and the incapacitated.
· We train individuals to obtain and retain employment.
· We inspire people to regain control of their lives and be productive again.

But we need YOUR help to do it.

Will you be a neighbor we can count on with a gift of $25, or any amount you can afford? Your neighbors need you now more than ever.
