Founded in 1969, The Education & Assistance Corporation (EAC) is a not-for-profit human service agency with a network of 66 programs throughout Long Island and New York City. Last year EAC helped over 62,500 people of all ages.
Among those we assisted were children who have been physically or sexually abused, senior citizens needing support, people struggling with substance abuse and/or mental illness, youth in the foster care system, persons on public assistance seeking financial independence, adults and youth who are under or unemployed, individuals needing help to mediate disputes and families in crisis.
