Welcome To The Economic Opportunity Council of Suffolk, Inc.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote a goal of self-sufficiency by broadening the minds of children, revitalizing communities, and assisting families and children in need through the provision of services and to coordinate available federal, state, local and private resources.

BE COUNTED!

Despite the mass disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Census Bureau continues to forge ahead with the constitutionally mandated decennial count of everyone in the country.  And it is critical that everyone – no matter their immigration status – complete the brief census questionnaire.

Around $1.5 trillion in federal spending is distributed each year using formulas that rely on census data, including Medicare and Medicaid, programs funded through block grants, Head Start, and the National School Lunch Program, among many others. These programs have significant effects on our communities.

So please be counted.  It takes just a few minutes.  Go to www.2020census.gov, or if you lack internet access, call toll free (844) 330-2020.  Your answers are totally confidential.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this difficult period.

The Economic Opportunity Council of Suffolk, Inc. wants you to know that, at this time, we are continuing to provide most of the vital services we normally offer. We are complying with all relevant public safety guidelines – and we are taking appropriate steps to consistently ensure the safety of our EOC of Suffolk team as well as the people we serve.

Our aim is to fulfill our mission, while also staying committed to the protection of the public-at-large.

Be safe!
