Celebrating our diversity
Located in northeast New Jersey, Passaic County has a population of more than 510,000 people and is a very robust and diverse region. Passaic County consists of approximately 41% Hispanic, 41% Caucasian, 10% African-American and 5% Asian. HCPC’s region of service extends to the greater Passaic County area but primarily focuses on the cities of Paterson and Passaic.
