Vollintine Evergreen Community Association

Memphis, Tennessee



The Vollintine Evergreen Community Association (VECA) is a group of residents working to improve the Vollintine-Evergreen neighborhood by working with each other, businesses, law enforcement, representatives of both city and county government, and nonprofit and institutional stakeholders and neighboring community organizations. This project grant provides support for the Vollintine Evergreen Community Association to redevelop an abandoned commercial building to serve as a community hub, and to complete associated streetscape improvements as part of the pilot round of the Kresge Innovative Projects: Memphis (KIP:M) initiative.
