Membership

The 19th Ward Community Association, formed in 1965, is one of the oldest Neighborhood Associations in the country. The Association formed to fight racist real estate practices, such as blockbusting and redlining, while purposefully cultivating a neighborhood that is diverse with respect to age, race, and class. We wish to celebrate our differences while uniting us as neighbors. We strive to preserve the residential character of our neighborhood, support our residents, and create opportunities that cultivate community. Learn more about our history from the history committee including a series of videos they made, see our newsletter for recent updates, and check out our events!

We are a member-supported, volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization. While donations and membership dues are crucial to our ongoing projects, anyone who lives in the 19th Ward is welcome to join at no cost. We encourage those who are able to choose the relevant level of support, and everyone can sign up or donate to specific projects at the membership and donation page.

We trap which takes hours and even days of prep work, hold the cats in a garage until they are transported to Lollypop veterinarian clinic. They return, get fed and monitored and then released to the colony where they live and get fed.Foodlink has been generous enough […]

Update 19 September 2021

President’s Message Karen Emerson In a newsletter received from Sister Diana Dolci of Hope Hall,  she wrote about community, hope and changing lives. She defined community as ”a group of people who come together for a particular purpose and who care about what happens to each member of that group.” Our neighborhood/city is struggling with having a sense of community. Recent incidents have made me […]
