Mission, Vision, & Values

Nevada HAND improves the lives of low-income individuals by providing affordable housing solutions and supportive Resident Services. We are committed to providing positive living environments where healthy, engaged, empowered residents can improve their economic status and take pride in their communities. We believe that providing opportunities and support for financial stability, health and wellness, education, and community engagement will help our residents reach their full potential and access opportunities to live well.

Having a stable, affordable home is critical to nearly every aspect of an individual’s life, the overall health of a community, and economic opportunity for the region. As the largest affordable housing developer in the state of Nevada, we build, manage, and advocate for the production and preservation of affordable housing for low-income individuals and families. We see firsthand how a stable, affordable home impacts individuals, families, and entire communities, from educational outcomes in school-age children to productivity in the workforce, greater civic and community engagement, greater independence for older adults, and better health outcomes for all ages. 

Affordable homes for low-income families and individuals are the foundation for great communities where people and economies thrive, and we are proud to be part of the solution for Southern Nevada. We thrive in collaboration, working with municipalities, a variety of public and private partners, and individuals to work towards affordable housing solutions for our region. We rely on our core values of curiosity, respect, resourcefulness, and integrity to deliver our mission, help our residents, and advance our community – creating opportunities to live well for years to come.
