Who We Are
Kalamazoo’s Vine Neighborhood, like all of the areas in the City, is a must-know community. In Vine, we cherish a unique and diverse mix of college, professional, and family residents, who appreciate living in a neighborhood that is within walking distance of many downtown attractions and events. The Vine Neighborhood Association is a resident-focused 501(c)3, and engages in advocacy work, helping to connect residents with the right resources, and facilitating groups of residents to achieve collective-impact goals. The VNA also endeavors to support and collaborate with other local agencies and for-profits.
The Vine Neighborhood stands on the land of the Council of the Three Fires- the Ojibwe, the Odama and the Potawatomi. Indigenous nations of the Great Lakes region are also known as the Anishinaabe, or original people, and their language is Anishinaabemowin. We acknowledge the enduring relationship that exists between the People of the Three Fires and this land.
