About Nevada HAND
Nevada HAND (Housing And Neighborhood Development) was formed in 1993 to improve the lives of low-income individuals, families, and seniors in Southern Nevada through affordable housing solutions and supportive services. The mission-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) real estate development and management organization uses a variety of funding strategies (government grants, programs, and philanthropy) and provides related services to help residents’ economic capability, wellness, success in school, and community engagement, providing opportunities for residents to reach their full potential, stabilize families and transform lives – to thrive instead of just survive. Nevada HAND has built and currently manages 30 affordable apartment communities that are home to more than 6,000 people throughout the Las Vegas metropolitan area, including the only two affordable assisted living facilities in Nevada providing 24-hour support to individuals needing a higher level of care.
