Who we are:

Foothill Unity Center is a place of real hope and possibilities for people in crisis throughout the San Gabriel Valley…offering food, crisis case management, health services, job development, housing and homeless services for low-income people in twelve communities in the San Gabriel Valley. It is also a place for those that want to give back through volunteering, and therefore, truly serving the whole community.

Foothill Unity Center was founded in 1980 by Josephine Anderson in a borrowed church closet in Monrovia, California, and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 1991.  Since the beginning, it has been a continuous source of services for qualified low-income families and people in crisis. We are committed to being part of the collective effort to end social inequities in our nation, eliminate poverty, and to create a just society for all. Our record of service helped us earn the Federal designation as a Community Action Agency for the Foothill Area.

The Center has received major support and recognition from community leaders and organizations, including several distinguished awards for its work in the community. The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank (LARF) considers the Center to be a top food pantry in the County, recognizing it with both the LARF Community Spirit Award and the coveted Tony Collier Award for “leadership in the war against hunger.” The Center has also received the Spirit of Humanitarianism Award from the Volunteer Center of San Gabriel Valley, the Community Achievement – Torch Award from the 48th District Schools Involvement Program, and the Hunger Fighter Award from the California Hunger Action Coalition for its dedication and commitment to ending hunger in California.
