We are the Community Investment Alliance.

We're a Colorado-based nonprofit organization focused on equity, opportunity, and the collective flourishing of all people.

Developing Stable Housing

Because everyone deserves a safe place to call home.

We partner with local communities, governments, and organizations at all stages of the development process and across the housing spectrum. Our experience spans temporary homelessness relief to affordable housing to workforce solutions to first-time home ownership.  

Addressing Homelessness

Thoughtful approaches to a complex problem.

We specialize in community-based strategic plans for unhoused neighbors, focusing on shelter planning, safe parking, and safe outdoor space. We know that for any measure to succeed, community engagement and buy-in is key.

Building Capacity

Laying the groundwork for ongoing flourishing.

Our end goal is to see communities thrive over the long haul. We help build capacity through grant writing, technical assistance, training and educational courses, and coalition building.

Catalyzing Systems Change

Championing policies for a brighter tomorrow.

Our systems are broken and often exclude the voices of the most marginalized, vulnerable, and affected. We are working to change that through policy development and advocacy work at the state and local levels.
