Blue Hills Civic Association
BUILDING HARTFORD THROUGH COMMUNITY ACTION
Established in 1962, The Blue Hills Civic Association (BHCA) is Hartford’s oldest civic organization. BHCA serves as a catalyst to inspire vibrant, healthy, civically engaged residents and leaders who are supported by strong schools, culturally competent health care, economic equality and safe neighborhoods.
We accomplish this by empowering the people living and working in the Blue Hills and surrounding communities to create stable and attractive neighborhoods through Youth, Family and Community impact.
