The Franklin Center of Beaver County (formerly Aliquippa Alliance for Unity and Development) has provided leadership in community and economic development since 1984. The FCBC was created in response one of the largest cases of de-industrialization in US history - the closing of LTV Corporation’s Aliquippa Works. The loss of 14,000 steel jobs left the city devastated. Located in the heart of Aliquippa, PA, FCBC has insured access to human service programs, housing, medical care, banking services, business financial assistance, educational opportunities, the arts, and workforce development for those in need. FCBC continues to serve as a strong voice of advocacy for community recovery initiatives.
