The Hook Up Internet Cafe and Resource Center: Montebello

Nestled at the corner of Whittier Blvd and 10th Street is a newly opened resource center to serve the community. The Hook Up Internet Cafe & Resource Center offers resume assistance, job search services, textbook loan, study area, art and music sessions, Internet access, computers, and printing.

The center is run by Esperanza Ortega and William Valenzuela, an engaged couple who while participating in the Occupy movement at E.L.A.C. last year found that many students were homeless. Wanting to do something to assist their fellow students started the resource center.

There is no cost to use any of the services and special assistance is given to veterans and the homeless. The couple freely offers anything that individuals or families may need including food and clothing.

Currently the Hook Up is funded out of pocket by Ortega and Valenzuela who are in the process of acquiring non-profit status for the center. Monetary donations as well as donations of non-perishable food, personal hygiene items, baby formula, children's books, textbooks, as well as clothing and shoes for adults, children, and babies are welcomed.

923 W. Whittier Blvd, Montebello
