We help build communities.


Civitas • ci∙vi∙tas (latin)

In ancient Rome the word civitas was used to express the condition of Roman citizenship. The term has since broadened, coming to mean a shared responsibility, a common purpose. For us, Civitas is community – and a commitment to bettering it.

Civitas, LLC is a national community development consulting firm based in Charleston, SC with offices in Wilmington, North Carolina and Glendale, California. We are in the business of thinking and doing. We help government, non-profit and for-profit enterprises solve problems and implement solutions.

Civitas is involved. We are passionate advocates and objective thinkers. Some would say we are idealists because we believe that the creative and the practical are not in conflict. We’re okay with that label.
