What is EAC Network?
EAC Network is a not-for-profit social service agency that empowers, assists, and cares for over 65,000 people in need through 100 programs across Long Island and New York City. Our mission is to respond to human needs with programs and services that protect children, promote healthy families and communities, help seniors, and empower individuals to take control of their lives.
We help people within five service areas: Children & Youth, Family & Community, Behavioral Health & Criminal Justice, Senior & Nutrition Services, and Vocational Services.
A Brief History
In 1969, four concerned women formed the Education and Assistance Corporation (EAC) to help students with special needs in Port Washington, NY. Over the years, our organization’s services slowly expanded to meet a growing need to help families, seniors, and individuals all across Long Island and New York City.
In 2013, EAC rebranded to EAC Network in order to represent the broad spectrum of programs and services we now provide. EAC Network aims to empower, assist, and care for all people in need.
Our organization has grown, offering over 100 programs over the past 50 years, but many of society’s core problems remain. People’s lives are still being destroyed by addiction, families continue to struggle to overcome poverty, abuse, and neglect, and seniors face isolation and abandonment.
Today, over 65,000 people rely on our services.
