About Ladera Heights

Ladera Heights is an unincorporated neighborhood in Los Angeles County, California. The population was 6,498 in the 2010 census. Culver City lies to our West, Baldwin Hills neighborhood to our North, View Park-Windsor Hills to our East, and Westchester to our South. While we are a predominately African American community, we welcome new residents of all backgrounds and beliefs.

Our Mission

The Ladera Heights Civic Association exists to ensure that our community remains an exceptional place to live, work, learn, play, and invest.

About the Ladera Heights Civic Association

The Ladera Heights Civic Association was formed in 1955 and exists today to help keep a great quality of life for our residents. We host monthly community meetings, frequent events, and help fund some of our neighborhood's most important programs. We would love for you to join our association to help us keep our tight-knit sense of community and forward progress as one of LA's premier communities.

Our community members pay annual dues for each calendar year. We are a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization that funds many community programs and projects. In addition to keeping the community informed on the latest issues, we also provide funds to local programs for children, seniors, and animals.


LHCA Board of Directors

Our volunteer Directors are elected to two-year terms by our community each November. There are several committees led by our board that we welcome anyone in the community to join. If you're interested in running for election, please contact us for more information.
