Mission Statement

The Federation of Neighborhood Centers was established in 1906 to help build strong neighborhoods by strengthening families and civic life. That mission is achieved by the Federation enhancing the capacity of its network of 10 settlement houses and neighborhood centers - community-based anchor institutions that collectively provide services to more than 25,000 low-income families, children and youth per year

The Federation of Neighborhood Centers (FNC) promotes and strengthens neighborhood-based, multi-service agencies that principally serve low income people in the Greater Philadelphia region. A membership organization rooted in the history and values of the settlement house movement, we support our member organizations through policy development, advocacy and capacity building activities.

  • Broadening resources opportunities for members in a variety of ways.
  • Serving as an incubator for new approaches to address social welfare issues of concern to our members and their communities.
