From Dream to Reality: The Building Campaign

In 2015, Foothill Unity Center provided:

  • 4 million pounds of food to low-income and homeless individuals
  • 50,159 unique client services
  • 5,400 bus tokens/tax vouchers/Foothill Transits
  • 1,630 dental procedures and 133 dental screenings
  • 1,475 children with new toys, clothing, and more for during the holidays
  • 1,022 children clothing, backpacks, haircuts, and more to go back-to-school
  • 100 emergency shelter vouchers
  • 117 vision screenings
  • 141 doctor visits

Despite all of these accomplishments, we realize that the need has never been greater. Within our current service areas, nearly 88,000 individuals live below the poverty line. We have to be prepared to assist them.

Foothill Unity Center is a place of real hope and possibilities for people in crisis throughout the San Gabriel Valley, meeting the emergency and basic needs of nearly 5,000 families and 10,000 individuals every year.

The Future of Foothill Unity Center, Inc.

The space we currently have available hinders our current programs, and is a barrier to the expansion of service. Anyone who visits Foothill Unity Center’s buildings can attest to our cramped facilities. Our vision is to provide a more comprehensive, “one-stop” experience for the individuals and families, where: all basic needs are met; all get the necessary support to become self-sufficient; and all are treated with love and dignity … all the time.

After years of planning, studying, and evaluating, we have decided to move forward with the offer for a property at 790 West Chestnut in Monrovia.

The Campaign for Foothill Unity Center, Inc.

The facility will offer solutions to the needed warehouse, staff, and program space.  It will increase operational efficiency and improve internal communication. For all these reasons, we are embarking on our first-ever, capital campaign to raise $6 million and purchase the new headquarters. A campaign of this size is perhaps the most significant event in the 36-year history of Foothill Unity Center.

We invite you to become a campaign supporter. You can choose to provide a one-time donation to the campaign or pay your gift over 3-5 years.

Our community is depending upon us to succeed because individuals and families in need cannot afford for us to fail. Together, we know that can we can and will find the way to achieve our vision.
