The Franciscan Community Development Center of Fairview is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated under the laws of the State of New Jersey. The organization is led by an interfaith Board of Directors who share the mission and philosophy of the corporation.
In July of 2006, The Franciscan Community Development Center of Fairview reached out to the congregation of St. John the Baptist Church and entered into a partnership to renovate portions of the Church property to create a comprehensive service center. Without a penny but with a lot of heart a miracle began.
The F.C.D.C is located in the southeast section of Bergen County in the town of Fairview, bordering Cliffside Park. It is a non-denominational, interfaith, pro-life organization based on the principles of love, charity, and compassion.
The Center will serve vulnerable populations being the poor, the underprivileged, immigrants, women and children, and the senior citizen population of Bergen County.
