Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Help Hope Home is Southern Nevada’s coordinated regional approach to assist individuals and families achieve stable and sustainable lives.
HELP HOPE HOME assists, gives hope and shelter for those who do not have or are at-risk of losing permanent housing. This is a regional approach to a regional issue that requires the collaboration of the entire community including the goodwill of our citizens, government, non-profit organizations, faith houses and businesses alike.
No one really expects or desires to become homeless. Often homelessness can be situational. In our current economic time, Southern Nevada has seen some of the highest levels of home foreclosures and unemployment in our nation. Homelessness does not discriminate. It can happen to individuals, youth, elderly, the infirmed, families and even you. Our goal is to assist with the basic needs such as food, housing, mental health services, employment training opportunities and support services in order to help individuals and families get back on their feet to achieve stable and sustainable lives.
We cannot do this alone. We need everyone's help. We invite individuals, corporations, businesses and foundations to donate to the Southern Nevada Homeless Trust Fund and invest in our community's future and quality of life. Join Clark County and the cities of Boulder, Henderson, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas in an effort to end homelessness and to lend a helping hand to our community's individuals and families in need. Homelessness is not just an individual or family problem, it's a community problem that requires a community solution.
