People Helping People
Welcome To Eaton Canyon Foundation
Eaton Canyon Foundation is a 501(c)(3) human services provider, serving the Greater Pasadena/San Gabriel Valley area since 1998. For over two decades, we have provided a range of services to underprivileged, uninsured, men, women, children and homeless individuals, including those with mental health and chronic substance abuse issues. We provide services to a racially, ethnically, and religiously diverse population of male and females, young and old.
We currently serve over 10,000 units of service annually, providing food, water, clothing, blankets, toiletries, and referrals for temporary housing and medical services. As the homeless crisis continues to grow, we are actively expanding both our services and areas we serve.
Mobile Homeless Outreach: Eaton Canyon Foundation seeks out and provides services 24/7, 365 days a year to long-term homeless individuals and low-income families, including those with mental health and/or substance abuse issues that have ‘slipped between the cracks’ and are unable to access assistance themselves. We provide on-site food, clothing, blankets, personal hygiene products, housing and medical referrals, and health assessments.
COVID-19 Community Crisis Mitigation: Eaton Canyon Foundation has recently added services in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. As an add-on service to the homeless, we provide vital supplies and testing to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
Holiday & Special Events: Eaton Canyon Foundation remembers those often forgotten on the holidays. We honor the homeless with annual events such as our Christmas Toy Giveaway, Thanksgiving Dinner, Easter Egg Hunt and Mother’s Day Dinner. These events provide them with a sense of connectedness and community during very trying times in their lives.
We proudly collaborate with the following partners to deliver services to our target populations:
