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 Minneapolis, Minnesota. We are in the business of thinking and achieving. We help government, non-profit and for-profit enterprises solve problems and implement solutions.
