About the 19th Ward Community Association

The 19th Ward Community Association is a group of neighbors striving to preserve the residential character of the historic 19th Ward neighborhood in Rochester, New York. Our mission is to create, foster and maintain a “multi-racial community where individual and cultural differences are celebrated and where people share a sense of community.” We are a member-supported, volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization.
