About Us


Vermont St. Neighborhood Association

The purpose of the Vermont St. Neighborhood Association [VSNA] is to foster:
  • Safety
  • Community
  • Neighborhood beautification
  • Education
VSNA was established in 2007 to address issues and concerns related to safety, community, neighborhood beautification and education,  preserving our ‘Home Zone’.  

We do this in a variety of ways like hosting annual Clean Team events in partnership with DPW and local neighbors.  We also partner with local companies to facilitate a company Day of Service which includes street beautification projects, team building and much more.  

Thanks to the generous support of neighbors and the above mentioned examples, we are able to raise money for much needed community repairs and improvements like other associations across San Francisco.
