Nevada HAND


Nevada HAND (Housing And Neighborhood Development) improves the lives of low-income individuals by providing affordable housing solutions with supportive services.


We are committed to creating positive living environments where healthy, engaged residents can improve their economic status and take pride in their communities. We believe that providing opportunities and support for economic security, health and wellness, education, and engagement will help our residents reach their full potential, stabilize families, and transform lives.


In Nevada, there are only 15 affordable rental homes available for every 100 low-income renters who need one. Nevada HAND is driven to address this shortage, as well as continue to expand its portfolio of supportive services. Our goal is to continue to provide high-quality affordable apartment homes and meaningful resident services that impact families, seniors, and our community.


Nevada HAND is more than a home. Our Resident Services team is a group of dedicated and creative professionals who connect our residents to essential resources and programs targeted at a range of personal goals. We are invested in supporting the success of our diverse residents.

■ For children and teens, we offer homework clubs, after-school programs, summer education programs, vaccination initiatives, back-to-school physical clinics, and food security programs.

■ For adults, we provide programs for workforce development, skilled parenting, financial planning, and adult education.

■ For seniors, we focus on supportive services that improve the overall quality of life as residents age in place, including programs that increase community engagement, encourage volunteerism, and promote health and wellness.

The programs and services we offer are made possible by the generous support of our community partners and donors, and by people like you. Thank you for supporting opportunities to live well.


Nevada HAND appreciates your gift of time. Individuals and teams are welcome to contact us to explore the many ways you can support our families and seniors. Each of our apartment home communities have a busy calendar of activities to accomplish each month. Whether through a game of bingo, a musical performance, personal coaching, delivery of goods, or story book reading, your volunteer support is valued.


October 2018 marks the beginning of Nevada HAND’s landmark 25th anniversary year. Philanthropic support from individuals, foundations and our business community are critical to our next phase of growth and impact.
