The North Hills Community Association (NHCA) is a registered 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization located in the North Hills region of Oakland, California. The NHCA's all-volunteer board organizes programs and activities that support the NHCA's three-pronged mission of improving public safety, maintaining and beautifying community gardens and open spaces, and advocating on behalf of area owners and residents with local city and county governments and agencies.

The NHCA has ramped down certain operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. We respect the importance of sheltering in place. We will resume our public safety programs, advocacy work and attention to community gardens as conditions allow. In keeping with our mission, we will post public safety and health information as appropriate. To learn more about the NHCA, check out Our Story.

ARE YOU IN THE NHCA?
Everyone who lives in the area bounded by Ashby/Highway13, Claremont Blvd., GrizzlyPeak/Skyline, and Thornhill is a member of NHCA.
