Founded in 2003, Community Environment Alliance has since been delivering innovative programs and services embracing the principle of sustainable community development adhering to millennium development goals.
We focus on providing holistic, client focused programs and services that address two critical pillars of poverty – digital insecurity and food insecurity. We also take a holistic approach to alleviating poverty and improving community well-being by exploring the links between human well-being, poverty and eco-system services.
Digital insecurity, like food insecurity, is a serious issue grappling our communities. We are committed to reducing the digital divide between the ‘have-more and have-less’ and building an e-inclusive society where everyone, regardless of their financial or circumstantial situation, are able to access the benefits of technology and tools to better their lives. We believe that every child, every adult, every student and every senior in our community must have the opportunity to access, learn and advance digital technology to participate effectively in today’s digital economy. To that end our flagship Share IT Computers for Community program provides customized reconditioned computers, printers and software along with technical support, cyber safety training and digital literacy support to low income families, students and children with special needs to enable them to transition to a better tomorrow.
We believe that a healthy community is one where Individuals are valued, families are nurtured, and community members are engaged in shaping the future; where everyone, irrespective of their financial situation, is able to access and afford healthy and nutritious food; where children grow up in a safe and supported environment surrounded by positivity and hope and where seniors are able to live an active, healthy and independent lifestyle. We believe that a community is as healthy as the physical, emotional and cognitive health of people living there. Core program and services include ActHeal Community Wellness program and Healthy Food Baskets for low-income families, seniors and newcomers facing food insecurity issues that are delivered weekly year round.
We believe that active community engagement is imperative to building a safe, healthy and sustainable community – because human health is directly influenced by the health of the surrounding environment that sustains our life and growth. Our stewardship actions include raising community awareness on indoor and outdoor air quality as it affects human health and the environment.
We take pride in our passion, and humbly acknowledge the support that we received from the community at large. CEA works with great respect and strong credibility within the community. We take the trust bestowed on us by our clients, partners, funders and supporters with utmost sincerity and respect.
The awards and recognition, including the media coverage that we have received over the years are from word of mouth only – which we believe is a strong testament to our passion, integrity, sincerity, and dedication for what we do.
CEA has a strong foundation of values that members of the team recognize and implement through service.

“I am a high school student who’s been without a computer for five years. It’s been very hard for me to complete assignments on time and hand in projects. I’d like to thank your company very much for allowing me to excel in life now… Thank you very much for giving me a chance.”
“I am a hard working single mother. I was in college pursuing a pharmaceutical degree. I had to take time out to take care of my daughter… Having a computer will be a blessing for me, because right now I can’t afford to get one…”
