The Pillars of SEAC

SEAC has created four pillars of focus, allowing us to have a greater impact in delivering our mission to the South East area community.

Poverty

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%. 

Neighborhoods

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.

Children

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, nutrition and 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!
