Deering Center Neighborhood Association

Deering Center Neighborhood Association (DCNA) works to support and cultivate our community by fostering neighbors’ relationships, exploring common goals and hopes, holding space for art and rich cultural experiences, and advocacy with our local government.

Deering Center is a friendly, vibrant neighborhood of village stores, shops and restaurants, historic expansive greenspaces, and walkable schools from K thru 12.
