Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Since 1996, Family Promise of Las Vegas (FPLV) works with homeless families with minor age children (to 19 years old) in Clark County Nevada to find employment and affordable housing to become stable members of the community.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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

Emergency Shelter Program

Families with minor age children are screened for placement in our motel shelter program. Applicants must be currently homeless, lack financial stability to provide a residence for their family. Family Promise of Las Vegas contracts with weekly motel operators for housing units. Families receive a full complement of support services to include case management targeted to job placement, connection to a variety of wraparound services, transportation assistance, weekly food deliveries and essential needs.

Population(s) Served
Families
Adults
Children and youth

Family Promise of Las Vegas master leases apartments for the purpose of transitioning families that need a short term stabilization plan to move forward to permanent housing. Families in this program are employed and agree to work with a case manager to save income and prepare to move to their own apartment. Families are usually in this program for 30 to 60 days.

Population(s) Served

Family Promise of Las Vegas receives funding from Clark County and the Emergency Food and Shelter Grants to cover eligible expenses for families in need of short term emergency assistance to prevent imminent eviction.

Population(s) Served

This program engages volunteers from our partner congregations, businesses and community groups to work with Family Promise of Las Vegas staff in supporting the needs of families in our shelter and housing programs. Activities include weekly meetings with assigned families and help with supplemental family needs such as food, clothing, household supplies.

Charting impact

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

GOAL 1: FPLV provides services to homeless families with minor age children (under 19 years) to achieve economic stability and sustainable housing. This is accomplished through the Emergency Shelter Program, Bridge Home Housing Program and Just Neighbors Program. The Family Navigation Center is the central hub for intake assessment and case management. The goal of FPLV is to keep families together while providing shelter, meals, transportation and case management to transition from homelessness to stability as quickly as possible and remain stably housed after 1 year (and into the future). Most families are able to move into a stable housing situation in 30-60 days.

GOAL 2: FPLV is working to construct a new Family Navigation Center to better meet the needs of our community. The larger facility will include transitional housing units onsite to expand our housing capacity. It will also include classroom training space to expand Family Promise specific programs on financial literacy, good parenting and good tenancy practices, for families experiencing homelessness and at-risk of homelessness.

GOAL 1: FPLV will grow funding sources to support the services required by homeless families to transition to stability, grow the network of community partners to support FPLV programs and housing assistance, and maintain case management for a minimum of one year for families once they are rehoused. FPLV will continue to collaborate with community services throughout southern NV to enhance efficiency and reduce unnecessary duplication of services.

GOAL 2: FPLV has title to 1.1 acre land parcel and raised 85% of the funds needed for a new Family Navigation Center. Work by our capital campaign continues. Grant awards are being finalized and a project manager has been hired. Groundbreaking is anticipated in Summer 2023.

GOAL 1: FPLV has an experienced program manager in place who will provide training to the new case manager and to volunteer instructors. Since 1996 FPLV has created a history of working in the southern NV community and engaging with governmental agencies, schools, nonprofits and other social service organizations to assure implementation of the goals that have been established.

GOAL 2: Since our inception in 1996 FPLV has demonstrated success in transitioning homeless families to stability. The success rate for families to achieve and remain stable has varied from 65-85% over this time - conditioned upon employment opportunities and housing availability.

GOAL 3: FPLV hired a professional fundraising firm to guide the capital campaign process. In addition FPLV has received support from the community in generating funding.

GOAL 1: In 2020 the COVID pandemic required that FPLV alter our sheltering model to meet public health requirements. In addition to establishing motel sheltering, bridge housing and prevention services FPLV developed the Just Neighbors program to connect community groups to pair with client families for support and mentoring. Our Just Neighbors program now has 7 participating organizations.

GOAL 2: FPLV has increased its presence on social media and throughout the community to grow awareness and funding support. Due to space limitations the number of families served in the past year has remained relatively stable. Family stability has been impacted by the extremely limited number of affordable housing options now existing in southern NV.

GOAL 3: The capital campaign has generated a number of grant applications and funding contributions to the building campaign are increasing.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Sep 01 - Aug 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
