The Polish Hill Civic Association (PHCA) works to make Polish Hill a better place to live. Our mission is to respect and preserve the sense of community in Polish Hill while promoting economic and housing development opportunities, and improving the quality of life for our community.
The Polish Hill Civic Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in September 1969. We are one of the oldest community-based organizations in Pittsburgh and are led by an all-volunteer board.
Here are just a few things we’ve done or are actively doing:
- Created a comprehensive community plan that guides our current and future work
- Advocate for Polish Hill and its goals in City-wide planning and development projects
- Organized the increasingly eclectic and popular Polish Hill Arts Festival
- Teamed up with City officials to designate greenway spaces throughout our community
- Partnered with Tree Pittsburgh and Tree Vitalize to plant and care for street trees
- Manage and care for community gardens, parklets, green spaces and City steps
- Assisted homeowners with renovations through a matching grant program
- Curated and installed The Sprout Fund’s first 3-D public art sculpture
