The Polish Hill Civic Association Of Pittsburgh (PHCA) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to serve as a referral resource for the residents of this city neighborhood by accurately responding to and taking action on questions, comments and concerns on topics such as housing, safety, beautification and public image.
The neighborhood takes its name from the large numbers of Polish immigrants who settled there in the latter half of the 1800s to work in the steel industry. Primarily residential, it is home to one of Pittsburgh's oldest and largest churches, the Immaculate Heart Of Mary. Homes are primarily simple row houses, although their roofs boast some of the best views in the city.
Through its membership, the PHCA solicits resident input and follows a democratic process to take action on all matters affecting the welfare of the residents.
The PHCA's headquarters includes both the organization's offices and the neighborhood's only public meeting hall.
