Welcome to Mid-City Community Advocacy Network
Mid-City Community Advocacy Network is a community collaborative based in City Heights, a dense and diverse urban community of about 95,000 people living within a 6.5 square area of San Diego. Our mission is to create a safe, productive, and healthy community through collaboration, advocacy, and organizing.
Mid-City CAN takes a unique approach to accomplishing its mission, working with residents and partners to drive positive change across many systems and issues. Rather than coming in as an outside force, Mid-City CAN extensively collaborates with the people of City Heights to see what they need the most in their neighborhood. The most pressing issues raised by the people themselves are then addressed through Momentum Teams, which are councils made up of residents from City Heights.
