About The Council
Founded in 1975 by neighbors with mutual care and compassion for the East Falls area, the council began as an events committee. While it still serves this long held tradition, the all-volunteer council has become much, much more. Members also publish our neighborhood newspaper, The East Falls NOW, and they serve East Falls as a Recognized Community Organization (RCO) representing the zoning and traffic concerns of East Falls to the city of Philadelphia. Additionally, EFCC is a registered charitable foundation (501c3) that works in close collaboration with a network of volunteer-based organizations throughout the neighborhood. East Falls Community Council's highest purpose is to advocate for the improved quality of life for every East Falls resident.
