Community Initiatives & Strategies
At CIHA, we recognize that it takes more than four walls and a roof to create a home. That’s why we focus our efforts on empowering people and investing in the communities in which they live. When it comes to building communities, we employ a number of tools and strategies, from environmentally-minded initiatives that honor our land to creative placemaking efforts that leverage the talents of artists and creatives to address community issues.
Homes To Be Proud Of
CIHA Focuses on building affordable rental housing that is both safe and makes residents feel proud to live in. Research makes it clear that this combination contributes to positive change for residents on the economic, social, and health fronts.
Collaboration & Partnerships
CIHA's success relies on our strong tribal partnerships as well as collaborations with other nonprofit groups and for profit businesses. No organization can do everything alone. We work together for a stronger Alaska.
Honoring Our Land
CIHA does more than build homes-- we help build strong communities and healthy neighborhoods. To work towards those goals, we help clean up browndield areas, build community gardens and green spaces, and restore creeks and other waterways. We respect the land and are devoted to taking care of it.
Creating Community Through Art
In collaborating with local artists and other creatives to find solutions for community issues, CIHA exemplifies how artistic partnerships can promote awareness of local challenges, build coalitions to give voice to under-served communities, and address current deficiencies while creating opportunities for community members to meet and interact.
