19th Ward Community Assocation



(585) 328-6571



Tuesday – Friday



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.
