Our commitment is to


We believe emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, physical, social, and spiritual wellness is key; we refer to it as the

8 Dimensions of Wellness.

Our Services

We envision a future where residents are healthy and successful and where our communities are safe and vibrant.

Our Services

THE EIGHT services are integrated, creative efforts that put forth a cohesive, community effort.

All of our programs/aspects and activities are part of the whole –to fight poverty, health illiteracy, and offer building blocks toward self-sufficiency.

The Eight serves between 12,000 and 15,000 vulnerable men, women, and children annually.

Our service delivery model is partnering with host locations throughout Riverside and Los Angeles Counties to provide a variety of pop-up HIWAY stations in low-income communities and where homeless individuals and families congregate.

THE EIGHT remains on the frontline responding to the emergency needs of families and individuals resulting from the onslaught of COVID-19. We offer help with COVID-19 resources, assistance with how to apply for these resources, and the distribution of essentials. Our community outreach events have shifted to a no-contact, leave at-door protocol to minimize exposure for high-risk groups while still meeting their basic needs. We also provide community resources online and advocate for people who need additional social services. These services are rendered to vulnerable populations in the region via telephone and online teleconference.



Our Mission

THE EIGHT, Inc., a community-driven, grassroots organization was founded in 2006 to address the health and wellness disparities among Riverside county’s most vulnerable populations--who often fall through the cracks of even traditional assistance programs.

We envision a future where residents are healthy and successful and where our communities are safe and vibrant. We strive to meet and exceed expectations by engaging people and communities in developing innovative solutions to challenges among our most at-risk populations.

THE EIGHT believes in a world in which ALL people are treated with respect and dignity, as well as valued and rewarded fairly for their skills, talents, and labor.


We also believe in the extraordinary power of the arts and technology as a unifying language of communication and a vehicle of integration for organic learning and creative entrepreneurship.

We partner with community stakeholders and virtual wellness enthusiasts in order to connect Life-changing Opportunities and People in Need.
