What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Nevada is currently ranked as the worst state in the country at providing affordable housing to low-income households. For extremely low-income renters in Clark County, there are only 15 affordable homes for every 100 needed (National Low Income Housing Coalition, The Gap Report, 2018). Affordable housing is a top community issue. The condition, stability, and lack of home have a tremendous effect on overall wellbeing. Simply put, when someone doesn't have a stable home that they can afford, other community services cannot be as effective at improving lives. Through affordable housing paired with our supportive resident services, we bring essential resources and community connections directly to where our residents live. We help empower our low-income working families and seniors to improve their lives in fundamental ways; helping to build financial security, enrich education and employment skills, improve health and well-being, and encourage community engagement.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Resident Services

Each Nevada HAND community offers More Than A Home through supportive, onsite Resident Services designed around four pillars aligned with the social determinants of healthy communities: Economic Stability, Education, Health and Wellness, and Community Engagement. Personalized outreach is a hallmark of Resident Services, helping residents access programming and resources to support their unique needs.

Life-enriching programs include after-school academic enrichment and summer activities for children, computer skills and financial literacy workshops for adults, and social and wellness events for seniors. Assistance with accessing public benefits, from affordable internet service to support for childcare or utility bills, helps residents become and remain more stable and self-sufficient. In our senior communities, onsite food pantries and regular, free private bus rides to shopping and medical appointments help address critical wellness needs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Nevada HANDs mission is to improve the lives of low-income individuals by providing affordable homes and supportive services. Nevada HAND aims to create positive living environments where healthy, engaged residents can improve their economic status and take pride in their communities. We believe that providing individuals with opportunities to live well -- in quality homes and through on-site supportive services helps our residents reach their full potential, stabilize their families, and transform lives.

More than 8,200 individuals, comprised of hardworking families and seniors on fixed incomes, call a Nevada HAND community home. It is our goal to keep serving Nevada's most vulnerable residents by attempting to meet the growing need for affordable housing.

We rely on our core values of curiosity, respect, resourcefulness, and integrity to deliver our mission, help our residents, and advance our community. We thrive in collaboration, working with municipalities, a variety of public and private partners, and individuals to work towards affordable housing solutions for our region. Our strategy is rooted in the foundation to position Nevada HAND for an increase in multi-family rental production in future years, helping to meet the growing community housing needs.

Nevada HAND is the largest non-profit housing developer in the state. For the past 30 years, Nevada HAND has been the leading affordable housing developer in the state, creating more than 5,000 homes for more than 8,200 individuals. We see first-hand how a stable, affordable home impacts individuals, families, and entire communities, from educational outcomes in school-age children to productivity in the workforce, greater civic and community engagement, and better health outcomes.

Nevada HAND contributes back to Southern Nevada in important ways and we are proud of our many accomplishments:

Management of a real estate portfolio of 36 properties with more than 5,000 units.

Operation of two affordable assisted living facilities, offering 180 apartments with 24-hour a day next-level care. These communities are the first, and remain the only affordable assisted living communities in the state of Nevada.

Resident Services Coordinators working on-site to directly support our senior citizens and families. Our supportive services distinguish Nevada HAND from other local housing providers.

Collaborative partnerships with numerous nonprofit organizations such as Three Square Food Bank, Spread the Word Nevada, UNLV, Touro University Nevada, and Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada. Such alliances avoid duplication of services and bring a range of outside expertise on-site to address resident needs.

Lending our expertise to assist other agencies. Examples include property management for Catholic Charities and Salvation Army's apartment communities, the design and construction of the Shannon West Homeless Youth Center for HELP of Southern Nevada, the development and construction of the new headquarters for Lutheran Social Services of Nevada and the latest Boys & Girls Clubhouse, and the design and construction of Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority's newest senior apartment community, Rose Gardens.

Awarded Urban Land Institutes inaugural Placemaking Award for our Boulder Highway Collaborative Campus.

The states first affordable housing community (Westcliff Pines) to achieve LEED Platinum certification. LEED is a national certification developed to encourage the construction of energy and resource-efficient buildings that are healthy to live in. Energy efficiencies are also incorporated into our other communities, with many equipped with solar systems to offset energy demands.

Nevada HAND has been awarded Certified Organization for Resident Engagement & Services (CORES) certification.

The Value of CORES Certification: 1. Demonstrated commitment to quality; 2. Improved health outcomes; 3. Accountable and collaborative partners; 4. Data-driven approach to resident impact.

The CORES Certification recognizes organizations with a proven track record of providing quality resident services coordination in affordable rental housing. Achieving CORES Certification signals an organization's commitment to the highest standards for resident services, a deep commitment to resident health and well-being, and data-informed operations and decision making.
