Family, Community & Non-Profit
When families in Eastern Jefferson County experience a crisis or face urgent needs, Eastern Area Community Ministries (EACM) is here for them. We provide emergency assistance with utilities and rent, access to our food pantry, and essential items for babies and toddlers - such as diapers, wipes, and clothing.
EACM also offers programming that empowers our neighbors to develop life-long stability and dignity. This includes workshops, mentorship, and financial education. For our immigrant neighbors, we have English classes and services to help them adapt to a new life in the US.
EACM is guided by the vision of a community where every person is empowered to be fed, sheltered, and safe. We are supported by the combined efforts of 39 area churches, local businesses, grant funds, and individual donors. Our service area includes the following zip codes: 40018, 40027, 40059, 40222, 40223, 40241, 40242, 40243, 40245.
