"In Las Vegas, people genuinely believe that anything is possible. This self confidence is rooted in people's individual experience and the collective story they tell. There is an unswerving sense of possibility upon which to create the future. As one person told us 'This is a community that does not know the words: It cannot be done'."

A Comprehensive Approach
Help Hope Home is Southern Nevada’s coordinated regional approach to assist individuals and families achieve stable and sustainable lives. This effort offers solutions that focus on responsibility, self-sufficiency and accountability.

A Focus on Fiscal Responsibility
Southern Nevada is spending $25 million annually on shelter and health services for the homeless without creating long-term solutions. Help Hope Home provides a coordinated, efficient and long-term response that is fiscally responsible.

Personal Responsibility
This effort is focused on a balanced approach. The provision of housing, treatment services and job training with expectations of personal responsibility and self-reliance from those who receive the services. Opportunities are created so that people can re-establish control of their lives.

A Regional Response is Mandated
Southern Nevada is over 8,000 square miles and includes the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, Mesquite and the town of Laughlin. There are over 9,432 homeless people in the valley, with 60% unsheltered. The entire effort must be addressed by the entire community.

We Are Not Alone
There are over 200 communities through out the United States that are addressing the issue of homeless through comprehensive plans. We are a part of a national movement to end homelessness.

On June 22, 2010, Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness was presented by the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness to the Office of the President and Congress. The plan outlines 4 main goals with 10 objectives towards ending homelessness in the nation.
