Mission Statement

FNC builds strong neighborhoods through intentional partnerships. We support children, youth, families, and individuals, including those involved in the criminal justice system. FNC focuses on youth development, urban farming, food access, workforce training, parent education, and re-entry services. Through fiscal sponsorships FNC supports new and established organizations that align with our mission. FNC partners for thriving communities.

Description

The Federation of Neighborhood Centers (FNC) has been providing programming and services to Philadelphia’s most vulnerable citizens for 111 years. Today, FNC provides extensive youth programming, based on our urban farms (The Community Learning Farms of FNC). Our three farms, located in North Philadelphia, West Philadelphia, and Roxborough provide over 12 tons of fresh produce to the community while also being a hub for community learning about nutrition, healthy eating, food access, and other related topics. FNC also provides workforce programming, parenting programming, and fiscal sponsorship for emerging non-profits. Originally created to connect the city’s settlement houses, today the people we serve are amazingly similar to the immigrants we supported in our early years - low income people of all ages who need additional supports to complete school, find jobs, and provide for families.
