The CLA is in the process of organization building


Equity has emerged as one of the CLA's core values, based on input and feedback from focus group and advisory committee members. The CLA is working with diversity, equity and inclusion consultants who have led the advisory committee and project management team in discussions. Subcommittee members are currently working together on the organization's definition of equity, which will act as a "north star," with the intention of guiding us in every decision we make.


The CLA is working with Mangrove Web Development, an Oakland based B-Corporation, to create the organization's brand and website. Below are images to consider. If you'd like to see more of the image sets to vote and/or provide input about the direction of the organization's branding, please fill out this form by April 28th, 2021.

Next Steps to Organization Building

The Supportive Housing Community Land Alliance (CLA) advisory committee and project management team have been working together on the various components of nonprofit formation. The Articles of Incorporation have been reviewed and filed. Up next are the following tasks:

  • Discussing and deciding on the CLA's membership structure,
  • Nominating and appointing the initial board of directors, and
  • Discussing and deciding on the organization's bylaws.

Focus Groups

The CLA has heard from over 35 focus group participants about what they would like housing for this organization to be like - including location, features, amenities, layout, safety, staffing and services. The opinions and perspectives of consumers are crucial to the creation of this organization, and we'd like to hear from more people. Please spread the word with these flyers in both English and Spanish.
