Our Programs

Civically's Mission

Civically, Inc. is a social enterprise nonprofit (501c3) focused on furthering community development by promoting civic and social literacy to instill self-reliance, while addressing emergent and immediate needs of those in the Greater Wilkinsburg and the Pittsburgh East End region.

Through the programs we create and the organization we partner with, we target specific challenges in the community such as:

FreeStore Wilkinsburg

Serving the Pittsburgh East End community since 2015 distributing new & gently used clothes, household goods, materials donated by private & retail donors. FreeStore Wilkinsburg is a community-based initiative that provides essential items and resources to residents free of charge. In addition to addressing economic challenges, a goal is to reduce waste and promote sustainability, especially in times of financial stress and/or emergency. FSW is independently operated by Civically.

Career Closet

The FreeStore Wilkinsburg Career Closet is a free resource for individuals trying to build or rebuild a professional wardrobe. The Career Closet is designed to empower individuals by offering them the tools they need to succeed in professional settings. By providing access to professional attire, it helps boost confidence and creates opportunities for career advancement. The Career Closet is a reflection of the community’s commitment to supporting its members. It operates on the generosity of donations from individuals and organizations within the community, creating a sense of unity and shared responsibility.

FreeStore Fresh Market

Fresh Market was founded through a partnership with Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank to provide fresh produce at no cost to community members. Through this market, we combat food insecurity by encouraging healthy meal preparations and education on nutrition.

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.

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