About Us

A Vibrant, Thriving, Multicultural Community

Our Mission

The Passyunk Square Civic Association (PSCA) is a Pennsylvania nonprofit corporation, and a Registered Community Organization (RCO) with the City of Philadelphia. We strive to enhance the quality of life in the neighborhood while preserving our unique historic character and supporting a cohesive community of residents, businesses, and institutions. We create programs and services that connect both lifelong and new neighbors. We keep an eye on preserving history while fostering a shared future vision.

Who is the PSCA?

You! All Passyunk Square residents and business owners are welcomed and encouraged to participate. Whether you are a lifelong resident or new to the neighborhood, you are a member of PSCA. We are run by a duly-elected group of volunteers. We welcome your participation in all PSCA General Meetings and Zoning Meetings which are free and open to the public.

How do I get involved?

Join us for our in-person monthly General Meetings at the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center (SPOAC), 1430 E. Passyunk Ave.

  • Meetings are the first Tuesday of every month (except July and August) at 6:30 pm.

  • Speakers are typically announced via email and on Facebook the Friday before the meeting.
