Fairmont Community Development Partnership
The Fairmont Community Development Partnership has served the Fairmont Community since 1992. Over the past thirty years, the partnership has seen many successes, including the construction of twenty-four affordable housing units on eleven different properties, providing safe, comfortable housing for dozens of families. FCDP promotes community and economic development along with neighborhood revitalization and affordable housing in targeted low-income areas. Its mission is to improve quality of life by assisting low-income families with safe, decent, housing and promoting business growth as part of local community development. After the challenges of the past year created by the pandemic and organizational changes, FCDP is seeking a VISTA to help develop a strategic plan through thoughtful community engagement, improve internal organizational capacity, and support families to be better prepared for future disasters or emergencies.
