The 19th Ward Community Association is a group of neighbors striving to preserve the residential character of Rochester, New York's historic 19th Ward neighborhood. The Association fosters and encourages mutual cooperation in a multi-cultural community. We are a member-supported, volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization.

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."
