Helping Out For a Better Tomorrow
Education Assistance Corp is a not-for-profit organization “reaching people in need” by providing 70 programs throughout Long Island and New York City. 57,400 people of all ages benefitted from EAC’s efforts last year. From children who have been physically or sexually abused to the elderly who require care, EAC provides social, financial, and legal counseling to individuals and families in need. Their mission is to provide programs and services that protect the vulnerable and foster self-sufficient communities of families who are educated about healthy-living.
The heartache of supporting a sick child is inexplicable. The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island is situated beside the Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York (formerly Schneider Children’s Hospital), where they offer warm beds and some of the comforts of home to the families of sick children being cared for next door. The parents and siblings of these sick children are able to stay nearby in order to support the patients around-the-clock, and the staff and volunteers and the Ronald McDonald House are available to support the families who put all their energy into staying strong for their kids.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island (BBBSLI) is an organization made of positive, professional roles models seeking to make a difference in the lives of young boys and girls. BBBSLI believes that every child has the ability to realize their limitless potential, and helps them to find it through the support of their Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Not every child is fortunate to grow up in an environment or community that fosters personal growth or a strong educational foundation, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have the right to a positive place to flourish. BBBSLI emphasizes personal accountability, both for oneself and for one’s community, and as they teach their “Littles” to be accountable for themselves and their actions, the “Bigs” hold themselves accountable for the success of their communities as a whole.
