Mission Statement

The Nevada Homeless Alliance pursues collaborative strategies to end homelessness in Southern Nevada through advocacy, public awareness, education, and the coordination of services. This requires a multidimensional, collaborative approach among government agencies, community organizations, the private sector and homeless people themselves. The NHA works to create and strengthen these relationships to facilitate an effective and comprehensive systems response to homelessness.

Description

The Nevada Homeless Alliance leads the coordination of Project Homeless Connect (PHC) Events, comprehensive resource fairs for homeless and low-income individuals and families that provide immediate access to a full array of services in one place.

PHC and Family Connect services include housing, medical/dental/vision services, behavioral health, job readiness, family resources, food resources, legal and court assistance, general community assistance, and more. The NHA has convened community partners in the planning and execution of 25 Project Homeless Connect events. Over the last five years alone, these events have assisted over 15,000 homeless clients in the accessing of resources and services.

In 2017, PHC events expanded from two annual events to monthly Pop-Up PHC events, a mini-but-mighty outreach event that convenes partner organizations to offer showers, housing assistance, ID recovery, medical and mental health support, legal aid, clothing, and more.
