About Us
Our Mission

The North Columbia Heights Civic Association is committed to fostering community involvement and improving the lives for residents in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of Washington, DC.

North Columbia Heights stretches between 16th Street and Georgia Ave. (west-east) and Spring Road and Irving Street (north-south) in Northwest Washington, D.C. While we often focus on the areas in north Columbia Heights, our organization seeks to include all residents of the greater Columbia Heights area. The NCHCA has a focus on neighborhood clean-ups, improving green space, contributions to local schools, public safety, graffiti abatement, improving traffic patterns and introducing bike lanes, and forging relationships with existing and potential businesses. Our mission shifts according to the expressed interests of our membership.

The NCHCA holds community forums at 7:00 P.M. on the first Wednesday of every alternating month in order to provide access to local business people, leaders, and politicians, as well as solicit feedback from our community. Additionally, we hold periodic neighborhood clean ups and regular planing meetings. Meeting locations and agendas will be posted on this home page.

The North Columbia Heights Civic Association is currently seeking 501c3 non-profit status.
