This is N.I.N.A.

The Neighbors in Need Alliance spent several months the spring of 2019 looking for a temporary safe place for the homeless to sleep this winter. They were not successful in this effort. In August NINA turned its attention to several other projects to help the homeless on a short-term basis with the goal of a permanent shelter in the future.


We are a coalition of concerned individuals and faith-based organizations advocating for the unhoused in Durango.


We are an all volunteer organization that is lead by a multidisciplinary steering committee where work is completed by ​four sub-committees

In 2019 NINA collaborated with PATH and the Athena Group to develop a strategic plan to address homelessness in Durango and La Plata County.
