HomeAid Southern Nevada and its partners from the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association recently renovated a six-plex that will provide affordable housing to low-income residents. An estimated $150,000 and more than 1,000 hours of work were donated by the nonprofit to complete the renovation.
The work was done as part of a larger project at Calcaterra Circle in Las Vegas. The entire Calcaterra project includes the renovation of six apartment buildings, which will create 42 units to accommodate lower-income families and individuals through Neighborhood Housing Services of Southern Nevada programs. HomeAid is donating all of the renovation work being done at Calcaterra Circle, a project currently estimated at $770,000.
“This project really speaks to our mission at HomeAid to better our community by building housing for the disadvantaged in Southern Nevada,” said Nat Hodgson, HomeAid executive director. “It’s a great feeling to provide affordable housing to residents in need and see the lasting impact a project like this has on the community.”
With the completion of the recent six-plex renovation, there is only one apartment building left to be renovated before the entire project is complete. The project was adopted in 2015. Lennar Homes, led by Vice President of Operations Wayne Shumsker and Area Manager Dan Marquez, was the build captain on the most recent renovation, with help from local trade partners. Previous build captains on the project include KB Home, Richmond American Homes, and Century Communities.
The HomeAid Southern Nevada chapter is sponsored by the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association. This partnership has resulted in more than $1.2 million in community donations through shelter build projects, which are made possible by the generosity of builders and suppliers.
