The Capuchin Development Office was created in the 1970s primarily to support the missionary efforts in Zambia. Over time, the role of the development Office has grown in support of the Friars’ efforts to establish ministries that meet the ever-changing needs of the less fortunate.

The Development office, located in Union City, NJ, coordinates all fund raising activities that assist the Friars in serving the poor, homeless, elderly, and ill. Such programs that are supported through this office include the Capuchin Network of Shelters (CNS), formation, caring for ill Friars in St. Lawrence Friary, as well as the ongoing Missions ministry in Zambia.
