When compassion meets action, lives change.

What We Do
The Druid Hills Neighborhood Association works to improve the quality of life for the residents its serves by engaging in various initiatives and services.
Little Free Library
is a grass-roots initiative offering local residents the opportunity to create strong communities through a book exchange program. In July 2018, the Druid Hills Neighborhood Association with the support of the City of Charlotte Neighborhood Matching Grant program had a Little Free Library installed in the Druid Hills Community Park.
was established to offer residents a variety of fruits and vegetables to supplement their diets.
is a Play 4 ALL initiative. The aim of the program is to bring residents and Law Enforcement Officers together to design and build a community playground. Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Metro Division along with county residents, youth and local leaders came together to build a playground at Druid Hills Park on March 29, 2017.
Community Alliance for Wildlife (CAW)
is a local chapter of the North Carolina Wildlife Federation. CAW provides environmental stewardship and education to residents of communities in Charlotte that are underserved and under-represented in biodiversity and conservation initiatives. Working with residents of Druid Hills, CAW has installed wildlife habitats.
National Night Out
is a "no tolerance" for crime campaign promoting police and community partnerships to help make neighborhoods across the country safer. The Druid Hills Neighborhood Association participates in this program annually.
The Butterfly Highway
is a statewide conservation restoration initiative of the North Carolina Wildlife Federation. The aim of the program is to restore native pollinator habitats to areas impacted by urbanization, land use change and agriculture across North Carolina. As a way to beautify the neighborhood, Druid Hills partnered with The Butterfly Highway to transform community gardens, backyard gardens, public spaces and park fragments into new pollinator and wildlife habitats.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for inviting me
to the Druid Hills Community Garden Dinner. The diner was very appetizing and simply delicious. The fresh vegetables from the community garden and a healthy green salad were a great change from a meat and potato dinner. Your presentation on the purpose of the community garden was very educational. Also, it was so kind of you and the community garden participants to provide free vegetables, fruit and plants to all of the invitees at the dinner to take home.
