Addressing an urgent need for more affordable housing in Southern Nevada, HomeAid Southern Nevada and its partners from the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association have completed a project that will provide renovated apartments to low-income residents in Las Vegas.
The affordable housing project was started in 2015 and includes the renovation of six apartment buildings encompassing 42 units at Calcaterra Circle near the Las Vegas Strip. The apartments will accommodate lower-income families and individuals through Neighborhood Housing Services of Southern Nevada programs. HomeAid and its partners donated 97 percent of total costs on the project, which cost more than $807,000.
HomeAid and Neighborhood Housing Services of Southern Nevada will host a dedication event to unveil the completed project on Thursday, Sept. 20, from 10-11 a.m. at 485 Calcaterra Circle, Las Vegas, 89119. Media is invited to attend the event, which will feature residents discussing the impact the project has had on their lives.
“We are so proud of all the hard work and collaboration that went into making this project a reality,” said Nat Hodgson, HomeAid executive director. “This project wouldn’t have been possible without the help of our build and trade partners. The finished product is something we are proud of and hope will make a real difference in the community.”
HomeAid’s build partners on the project include KB Home, Richmond American Homes, Century Communities, Lennar, and Pulte Homes. HomeAid also worked with key trade partners to renovate the units.
The HomeAid Southern Nevada chapter is sponsored by the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association. This partnership has resulted in more than $3.4 million in local donations through shelter build projects, which are made possible by the generosity of builders and suppliers.
