EAC Network

“I think we are different than almost any other nonprofits in this metropolitan area. We take the programs that nobody else wants to do,” says Lance Elder. “We have people dealing with the mentally ill, with substance abusers [and with the] dually diagnosed.” For example, EAC Network recently took over a guardianship program in Suffolk County. “The organization that was doing it for years decided that they wanted to get out,” says Elder. “So we got approached … and we said, ‘Yes, we can do this.’” EAC participates in various social service and business networking organizations throughout the region, “so the people know who we are and don’t hesitate to pick up the phone,” says Elder. “We collaborate with other organizations, because they know we do quality work.”


Transparency and an open-door policy will lead to a great corporate culture.”
