About MVCA

The Mount Vernon Civic Association (MVCA) was organized by local residents in 1971 and over the past 40 years has grown from representing approximately 400 households to over 900.  MVCA is a non-profit and consists of volunteers who donate their time and resources to make our community a better place for everyone.  

The MVCA is a member of the Mount Vernon Council of Civic Associations and the Fairfax County Federation of Civic Associations.  The Association represents its members through direct contact with local elected leaders and through its participation in the Mount Vernon Council and Fairfax County Federation.

The MVCA serves the needs of the local community through service projects, such as the annual community clean-up, neighborhood watch, and support to neighborhood schools and organizations.
