Our offices are located in the St. Martin de Porres Center at the rear of St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Hacienda Hts. Five days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The EAC Staff sees to the emergency needs of the homeless and those at risk. This could be a hot slice of pizza, a sack lunch, showers, hygiene kits, bus tokens, motel vouchers for families and counseling and advocacy for those who need help. The clients often use the EAC office address to receive their mail.
“People don’t realize that the homeless have children. This valley has the second largest homeless family population in Los Angeles County! The only place the EAC can put these families is in a motel for a few nights…not a solution, but a band-aid. We desperately need more places like Job’s Shelter!”
