Welcome to our Chamblee, GA neighborhoods!

Neighborhoods, 11 Communities, Approximately 1200 Registered Voters

What is DECA?- Dresden East Civic Association – DECA – is a nonprofit Civic Association created to preserve and enhance our neighborhoods.  We are guided in our work by overall community interests dedicated to maintaining and improving the quality of life for residents in the DECA neighborhoods and surrounding areas.

Holidays For Heros


Your neighbors and Dresden East Civic Association are raising money for our 4th annual Holiday for Heroes. We will provide Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for firefighters located at the Clairmont, Dresden, PDK and Mercer stations along with the Chamblee and Doraville police officers, (approximately 80 people). We will also provide special treats for the police K9’s.

“This is the least we can do for those who dedicate their lives each day and night for the betterment of our communities. They protect us from harm unseen and unheard. Our servicemen and women are the true definition of Heroes. " — Christopher Lee, DECA President

Our target amount is $1,200 to cover costs. This will be in addition to any donations provided by local food markets. The deadline is November 19 to allow adequate preparation for delivery. Please click on the link below to donate. Please also share with your neighbors.

DECA will use any leftover funds for next year's Holiday for Heroes, or for other charitable uses determined by the DECA board.

What DECA Does...

DECA has various goals from year to year.  Stopping crime, re-beautification of the neighborhoods within the community along with the parks, and working with the city to get the changes needed in our community put to the forefront of their agendas.  2017 is no different.  Our main goals are:

  • Contributing time and funds to making Buford Highway beautiful.
  • Creating a Safety Committee.
  • DECA dog tags to incorporate the neighborhood pets.

These are just some of the main highlights we're working on and want you to be a part of it!

You might be thinking, “How do I get involved?"  Well, it's pretty simple!  Become a member.  There are multiple ways to become a member too.  You can sign up at our next quarterly meeting.  You can turn in the membership form in the DECAzette, or you can become a member here.  By doing so and contributing $20 (the price of one soft drink monthly), you are helping the ultimate cause of making where WE live a better place.
