The CLA is gathering guidance from the community

Advisory Committee

The Supportive Housing Community Land Alliance (CLA), has formed an advisory committee. The group consists of ten individuals with unique knowledge of SMI and expertise in the areas of affordable housing, supportive services, alternative fundraising, policy and advocacy, as well as equity and inclusion. Members include consumers, family members of consumers, county staff and nonprofit service providers. 

Many thanks to the CLA advisory committee members for their guidance and leadership in the development of a compassionate, innovative and stable approach to long term housing for people living with SMI. Visit for more information. 

Focus Groups

The CLA held their first focus group in January and plans to hold several more in the coming months. We are inviting more people to join us for a series of focus groups to envision the housing, supportive services and membership components of the organization. 

If you are an Alameda County resident living with a serious mental illness, have had an income below 30% AMI in the last 5 years and are interested in being considered for a focus group, please fill out this eligibility survey. Understanding that we are asking individuals to share feedback and life experience, we are offering a stipend of $75 to each person who participates in a focus group via Zoom or by phone for up to 90 minutes.

If you are a family member of someone living with SMI and would like to participate in a separate focus group with other family members, please contact us at
