SEAC’s Mission

SEAC promotes quality of life for Rochester’s south east area community by connecting individuals and community partners to essential resources.


Growing our Community

We meet the needs of those we serve by working to increase civic engagement, racial equity, and strengthening our community at all levels. SEAC is in constant communication with our neighborhood and business leaders, listening to their concerns and helping to increase fostering neighborhood improvement initiatives.


We work to make our neighborhood a great place to live, work, and play. Let us know what we can do to help by contacting us.

The Pillars of SEAC


We advocate anti-poverty initiatives, supporting programs, events, and community partners seeking to improve quality of life for those affected by poverty* in the South East area. 

*Nearly 33% of Rochester’s population exists below the poverty line, compared to the national average of 13%. 


As one of Western New York’s oldest neighborhood preservation organizations, SEAC has had decades of experience connecting homeowners with organizations and programs to acquire needed funding for emergency repairs and improvements to their houses.


To say “children are our future” may be cliché, but it does not make it any less true.  We strive to grow awareness and support programs enhancing safety, education, health, and play spaces for children.

Local Businesses

The South East area is full of amazing local businesses and we are thrilled to support them!  Through the years SEAC has collaborated with many with many of them to fulfill our mission and we look forward to many more years to come!
