DCNA is an organization that welcomes and helps connect neighbors in open, kind, and meaningful ways. It advocates to the city government on behalf of Deering Center neighborhood for services that are important to our community and brings people with shared interests together to address needs and explore common goals. Our aim is to foster relationships and to hold space for rich experiences on this little piece of the city we share and call home.
If you have news, events or activities you’d like us to share, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or message us at our Facebook Page.
