About the EAC Network

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.
