The Virginia-Highland Civic Association's charter states that its purpose is "the promotion and the furtherance of the common good, general welfare and interests of residents of The Virginia-Highland."

Virginia-Highland Civic Association (VHCA) was founded in 1971 by Joseph (Joe) Drolet and others with the mission to defeat the construction of the Interstate 485 through the neighborhood.

Today, through the association VaHi residents coordinate matters including planning and zoning, safety, parks, communications, preservation and history, community events, traffic, sidewalks, and parking. VHCA organizes two yearly events, Summerfest and Tour of Homes, which earn revenue that make many of those efforts possible.
