Pillars of SEAC

In 2021, SEAC 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%.

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.
