They provide an affordable place to live for nearly 8,000 locals, but it’s the extensive services and support Nevada HAND offers that have made the biggest difference in so many lives.

“When people have safe, stable and high-quality homes, our entire community benefits,” said Waldon Swenson, Vice President of Corporate Affairs for Nevada HAND. “We are committed to creating positive living environments where healthy, engaged residents can improve their economic status and take pride in their communities.”

Nevada HAND is the largest nonprofit in the state dedicated to improving the lives of low-income seniors and families. They have provided affordable homes paired with supportive services in Las Vegas for nearly 30 years.

Aside from safe and affordable housing, Nevada HAND has created a bevy of effective programs to help families and seniors thrive.

“We connect residents with workforce development programs as well as skilled parenting, financial planning and adult education,” Swenson said. “For seniors, we focus on supportive services that improve the overall quality of life as residents age, including programs that increase community engagement, volunteerism and health and wellness.”

For children and teens, the homework clubs, after-school programs, summer education programs, vaccination initiatives, back-to-school physical clinics and food security programs help them flourish.

As an essential business, Nevada HAND has stayed open to assist the growing number of families in need during these difficult times.

“We implemented strict social distancing and sanitation guidelines set forth by our government and our organization,” Swenson said. “With all of the uncertainty that 2020 has brought, we are proud of the fact that our business operations have continued.”

Nevada Hand continues to grow. Construction recently wrapped up on two new properties, Rome Pines and Flamingo Pines.

“Between those two properties, we are welcoming an additional 255 new residents to our portfolio before the end of 2020,” Swenson said.

Construction begins next year on a development that consists of 480 units of affordable housing at Decatur Boulevard and Alta Drive. The complex will include 10,000 square-feet of inline retail space.

“We believe that providing opportunities to live well, in quality homes and through resident services,” Swenson said, “will help our residents reach their full potential, stabilize families and transform lives.
