“Fifth Avenue Committee brings an irreplaceable set of values and capacities to New York City’s housing ecosystem. FAC fearlessly crosses the boundaries between organizing and development; between lifting up individuals and fighting for systemic change; between its day-to-day work on the ground and a community-driven vision for an equitable, inclusive, and vibrant New York City.”

-Joan Byron, Program Director, Neighborhoods First Fund

“Change Capital Fund is proud to invest in the Fifth Avenue Committee, which provides South Brooklyn’s low-income residents with affordable housing, jobs and social services while building residents’ power to shape their communities. As always, but especially now, in the time of the COVID pandemic, it is abundantly clear that FAC, and organizations like them, are a critical part of New York City’s infrastructure – as important as fire houses and roads – to the neighborhoods they serve.”
