What is Foothill Unity Center?

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, California. As the federally designated Community Action Agency for the Foothill Area, we 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. 79% of our 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.

GREAT NEWS!!!!
You may have heard that Foothill Unity Center’s 14’ white box truck was stolen yesterday. Fortunately, it was recovered today thanks to the great work from the Monrovia and Pasadena Police departments. We are so grateful to have our truck back as it is a critical component to the daily operations of our programs to serve the San Gabriel Valley community. It is one of two trucks that we rely on for more than the hundred weekly pick-ups of our in-kind food donations valued at over $2 million (annually). The food totals approximately 3 million pounds and helps to serve over 6,500 low-income and homeless individuals, including seniors and disabled persons who are isolated, sick and shut-in.
Our concerns with the possible loss were even greater since the trucks were aging out and needed to be replaced before the New Year.
Sincere thanks to our community for any tips you may have provided and for your support!
