Help Hope Home
 
The Help Hope Home Initiative is a coordinated regional approach to addressing and preventing homelessness in southern Nevada. This approach is balanced, focusing on accountability and service delivery. Through transitional and permanent housing, mental health and treatment services, and employment training and job placement, we are working to decrease the cost of homelessness while helping individuals and families move to self-sufficiency.
 
The Help Hope Home initiative is anchored by a 10 Point Plan which was approved in June of 2005 by the Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition and its Committee on Homelessness. Further, the City of Las Vegas authored a Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness specifically identifying their goals as they relate to the 10 Point Plan.

Southern Nevada Homeless Trust Fund
 
Homelessness affects everyone in southern Nevada and you can affect homelessness. In the plan, there is a role and a part for everyone. Corporations are being asked to invest in the future of our community through contributions, volunteerism and the donation of professional services. The homeless are being asked to work with their social workers and case managers to find jobs and pay a portion of their rent. Now we’re asking for your help.
