We are the Vollintine Evergreen Community Association, a gathering of volunteers with a consistent mission: to keep our community a place people want to live, work, shop, eat, and simply be in Memphis.
For more than 40 years, VECA members and volunteers have been engaging with and investing in our neighborhoods.
Our goals are to:
- Support our volunteers and committees as they ignite grassroots involvement, continuing VECA’s history as the primary change agent in Vollintine-Evergreen.
- Engage in effective and efficient partnerships with surrounding neighborhoods, institutions, and government entities to accomplish mutual goals.
- Work directly, and in partnership with neighbors and the city & county, to improve and maintain properties in the neighborhood.
- Remain an organization with the necessary flexibility to support an authentic grassroots base but also the organizational structure necessary to make projects manageable and sustainable.
Memphis’ overall success hinges on a network of healthy neighborhoods. Thanks to the decades-long efforts of VECA, Vollintine-Evergreen is one of the most stable, desirable, and diverse neighborhoods in the region.
