St. Paul's Community Development Corporation was founded in 1990 as the outreach mission of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in the City of Paterson, New Jersey. Today we are a separate, secular, not-for-profit organization guided by a diverse and voluntary board of directors that bridges racial, economic, geographic, and religious boundaries. Our purpose is to alleviate the conditions of hunger, homelessness, unemployment, poverty, and illiteracy in the City of Paterson. We do this by providing emergency services to all in need and by designing long-term approaches to achieving social and economic improvement at the grassroots level. Learn more about us...

St. Paul's Community Development Corporation (SPCDC) is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Donations and contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Our Tax Identification Number is 22-3075855.
