Our Mission: FDC is dedicated to meeting the needs of a diverse and vibrant Brooklyn. FDC identifies and responds to these needs by building partnerships, creating programs, and developing campaigns that promote enhanced quality of life, safety, equity, and preservation of our community.
Our Vision: People, businesses, and ideas come to Brooklyn to bloom and flourish! The diversity and commitment of our community creates energy and passion for progress. FDC is the catalyst and agent of change that ensures that an enhanced quality of life and shared prosperity is a reality for all. We celebrate our history and we work to produce a future that is worthy of the rich traditions and strong roots that have supported our growth. By preserving our historic heritage and maintaining our beautiful landscape we connect our Victorian past to our multi-cultural present and future. By preserving affordable housing we maintain our unique place as the nation’s most diverse neighborhood, both ethnically and socio-economically. We continuously educate and empower youth and future generations to come. By creating and promoting intra-community events and activities that we all share in, we demonstrate that we can work together, live together and have fun together. Flatbush Development Corporation and the community as a whole work together toward the common good, towards a greater understanding of each other, with a mutual respect and shared accountability for all.
