Alexander De La Campa
Alex joins the CCRH team as a Programs Coordinator with the pleasure of supporting various affordable housing organizations and tribal communities across California.
Alex found his calling in the housing industry following the financial crisis of 2008 when his family was forcefully removed from his childhood home. The impact that the loss of housing had on his family and himself supplanted the importance that secure, dignified, affordable housing plays in an individual’s life.
After serving honorably in the United State military from 2009-2014, Alex served as both the Vice President and President of the Student Veterans Organizations at Diablo Valley College and San Jose State University. Alex holds tightly to a sense of purpose and duty to service, continually advocating in the fields of affordable housing, education, environmental protections, and veterans’ rights.
In 2016, Alex deployed with veterans across the country to support indigenous rights and access to land and water during the Standing Rock protests in North Dakota.
During College, Alex was also a graduate of the inaugural cohort of the Bay Area Housing Internship Program (BAHIP), where he supported outstanding professionals as a Project Manager during the midst of the Bay Area housing crisis, through the development of over 200 units of 100% affordable housing for Bay Area workers, homeless and/or at-risk veterans, and low-income residents.
Alex graduated from San Jose State University in 2019 holding a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a concentration in Community Change with a focus in Computer Science and data analytics. Additionally, Alex is a certified Peer Support Specialist through the Depression and Bi-Polar Support Alliance, and a certified yoga instructor through the Veterans Yoga Project.
