About Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission

Founded in 1965, Fresno EOC has spent over five decades investing in people, helping them become self-sufficient.

Fresno EOC is considered one of the largest Community Action Agencies in the country. We employ over 1,200 full and part-time staff members committed to transforming lives. With over 30 programs to serve the community, we bridge gaps with almost every aspect of the underserved population.

When Congress passed the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, the goal was to obtain equality of opportunity in education, employment, health and living conditions for every American in our country. To realize this goal, nearly 900 locally-based Community Action Agencies were established throughout the nation; Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission, known as Fresno EOC, is one of these agencies. We are widely recognized and are one of the largest nonprofit Community Action Agencies in the United States.

Helping People and Transforming Lives is what we are about
