Southern Nevada Continuum of Care Governance Structure - DRAFT

The above file is a draft of the Southern Nevada Continuum of Care Governance Structure for public review and comment. This governance structure recognizes the initial regional framework designed by the SNRPC in 2003, while incorporating the rules and regulations enacted and mandated from the HEARTH Act and the CoC Program in 2009; hence the re-authorization of the SNRPC CoH and CoC into one cohesive structure.

In order to meet the deadline of August 30, 2014, the Governance Structure must be adopted by the CoC per the HEARTH ACT. This is also necessary for Southern Nevada to stay competitive for Federal funding targeted for homeless. Comments, feedback and/or suggestions from the CoC are needed prior the July SNRPC CoH meeting. We have scheduled three separate roundtable workshops for CoC members to attend in order to learn more about the Governance Structure. These workshops will give CoC members an opportunity to discuss the governance structure with the Governance Structure Team members (who created the document) and address any questions, comments or concerns.

Please contact Lori Lopez at 702-229-5421 or email CoCGovernanceStructureComments@
to submit comments and/or questions.

During the period of January 29-30 2014, Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition Committee on Homelessness conducted the 2014 Southern Nevada Homeless Census. In an attempt to end homelessness, the U.S. Congress has required that governments receiving federal funds under the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act must conduct annual counts of their homeless population. The region has implemented the homeless census and survey for this reason, to obtain more accurate and useful data.

It is the intention that the results of this research will assist service providers, policy makers, funding sources, and local, state and federal governments to better understand and plan for the needs of the homeless population by examining current statistics in various geographical contexts. The information for the 2014 Southern Nevada Homeless Census and Survey will hopefully help policy makers and service providers more effectively develop services and programs to serve the County's homeless population, especially in comparison to census information collected in 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2013.

Help Hope Home is Southern Nevada’s coordinated regional approach to assist individuals and families achieve stable and sustainable lives.

A message from Kathi Thomas-Gibson,
SNRPC’s Committee on Homelessness, Chair

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead,
Used with Permission

This statement attributed to anthropologist Mead has become a motto and rallying challenge for those of us committed to meaningful change in the face of intractable challenges. It is an ethos that drives the regional work we must do to address homelessness in Southern Nevada.

Our regional collaboration, HELP HOPE HOME, is a partnership that coordinates efforts to prevent and end homelessness in Southern Nevada. We know that homelessness cannot be solved by one individual or by one entity; it requires the commitment and compassion of the entire community working together to find solutions.

Lasting solutions must come from all sectors of our community including residents, faith-based organizations, non-profit providers, businesses, civic groups, education, law enforcement, healthcare agencies, and governmental entities. You are an important part of the solution. Help raise awareness by discussing the issue of homelessness with your family, friends, and colleagues. Educate yourself and others about the true nature of the problem. Learn about the needs of children, senior citizens, and even whole families faced with homelessness. Engage with others who are a part of a "group of thoughtful, committed citizens" that are impacting the scope of homelessness across the valley.

There are many ways for you to support this regional effort through volunteering, in-kind donations, or financial contributions. I invite you to join Clark County and the cities of Boulder, Henderson, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas in our efforts to end homelessness in Southern Nevada.

Please contact the SNRPC Regional Initiatives Office at for more information and to find ways you can get involved and become a part of the solution. We cannot do this alone. We need your help!
