Seven former homeless adults are sleeping in their own beds in their own apartments now. They are clients of HELP of Southern Nevada, who have entered the nonprofit organization’s Hospital to Home housing program. To make their transition from homelessness a reality, Move 4 Less assisted HELP of Southern Nevada by moving new mattresses and frames into the seven client apartments.
“We’re so appreciative of Move 4 Less’ assistance in helping us transition seven of our homeless clients into the next phase of self-sufficiency,” said Mindy Torres, Homeless Services Director of HELP of Southern Nevada. “With numerous deadlines pending for our clients, Move 4 Less made supporting our clients on short notice a smooth and worry-free experience, and mover Drew Potts was professional and so considerate.”
HELP of Southern Nevada assists families and individuals throughout the valley to overcome barriers and attain self-sufficiency through direct services, training, and referral to community resources. One of its many programs, Hospital to Home provides intensive case management and rapid rehousing for medically fragile individuals or families who must have a medical diagnosis and be referred by Health Plan of Nevada.
The Move 4 Less support is a continuation of the local company’s two-pronged philanthropic initiative, Moving Our Community. The program encompasses providing moving services to nonprofit organizations for essential items related to their beneficiaries and to families affected by COVID-19 who need to relocate from their current residence. For the latter component’s first phase, four families were selected through an application process, and Move 4 Less owners are paying for the moves when their new locations are secured, and interim storage, where applicable.
“We were delighted to assist HELP of Southern Nevada and its clients as they work to break out of the cycle of homelessness,” said Avi Cohen and Moti Perez, Move 4 Less co-owners. “Given our moving resources, Moving Our Community is the perfect way for us and our great team to help others, particularly during the pandemic.”
