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.

Resident Services

Nevada HAND's supportive Resident Services team provide critical connections, programs, referrals, and resources to help our residents climb the ladder of success, strengthen their prospects for the future, and increase our community's economic vitality. Every resident participates in collaborative assessment with their resident services coordinator to ensure they receive personal attention to address their individual needs.

Our Resident Services work is delivered through four key pillars that help propel social and economic mobility:

* EDUCATION

* FINANCIAL STABILITY

* HEALTH & WELLNESS

* ENGAGEMENT

Charting impact

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

Nevada HAND’s 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 7,600 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 27 years, Nevada HAND has been the leading affordable housing developer in the state, creating more than 4,600 homes for more than 7,600 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 34 properties with more than 4,300 units. Two additional communities are currently under construction; an independent senior living community in Las Vegas and one family community in North Las Vegas.

• 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 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 Institute’s inaugural “Placemaking Award” for our Boulder Highway Collaborative Campus.

• The state’s 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 off-set energy demands.

• Honored by the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce as a Trendsetter at their Business Excellence Awards 2017.

• Our assisted living communities were voted the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas” as Best Senior Living Community and Best Active 55+ Community in 2017, 2018, and 2019.

• An exemplary member of the national NeighborWorks Network and the Housing Partnership Network.
