Moving Forward. Together.

Our Mission.

We are a nonprofit social enterprise(501c3) that focuses on community development by promoting civic and social literacy to instill self-reliance while addressing the immediate needs of the economically underresourced in Wilkinsburg and the East End region. Civically engaged communities are sustainable communities.


Free Store Wilkinsburg

Founded in 2015, FreeStore Wilkinsburg redistributes new and lightly used goods at no cost to East End community members, especially in times of financial stress and/or emergency.​ FSW is independently operated by Civically.


Reimagine The Hunter

Committed to the lasting social and economic developments in Wilkinsburg, civically is investing in Wilkinsburg’s future and viability through redevelopment of the Hunter Building, the largest commercial building in the business district.

Civically Speaking

A podcast/tv segment focused on topics of civic engagement. Civic education empowers us to be well-informed, active citizens, and gives us the opportunity to change the world around us. It is a vital part of any democracy.

Building a Healthy Community

Through programs such as Wilkinsburg Fresh Market, Community Conversations and CommunityCare Wilkinsburg, we are building a healthy community through health equity, improving greenspace and civic literacy.
