Founded in 1980, Foothill Unity Center is the primary provider of food, case management/crisis help, and access to health care resources across eleven San Gabriel Valley cities in Los Angeles County. As the federally designated Community Action Agency for the Foothill Area they operate two locations, in Monrovia and Pasadena, serving clients in Pasadena, Altadena, South Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Arcadia, Monrovia, Bradbury, Duarte, Azusa, Baldwin Park and Irwindale. Seventy-nine percent of their clients are at, or below, the National Poverty Level. The number of people served by the organization has more than tripled over the last five years, making community funding, contributions, and volunteer support more critical than ever.
The demand for help has been overwhelming over the past few years and Foothill Unity outgrew its old location just east of the new building. A major capital fundraising effort began years ago and the result can be seen firsthand.
The new building is located at 790 West Chestnut in Monrovia. For more information call (626) 358-3486.
