About This Initiative
More than 6,000 individuals and families in our community lack permanent housing—with 64 percent of our homeless population living on the streets, in encampments, cars or other places not meant for human habitation.
The city of Las Vegas is committed to ensuring that all residents can access a safe, respectful, permanent location to thrive, and is working with local partners to address the needs of individuals experiencing homelessness.
The Courtyard Homeless Resource Center, launched in 2017, is an innovative public-private partnership that convenes a range of service providers in a central, convenient location, to provide homeless clients with access to:
medical/mental health services
and other wraparound services
To provide the range of services homeless individuals need to regain independence, the Mayor’s Fund is seeking significant support. Unique partnership opportunities include:
Rapidly rehousing a single homeless individual or a homeless family
Permanent supportive housing (including wrap-around services)
Bridge housing for clients who are waiting for permanent placement in a housing program
Move-in costs and rental assistance for clients who are newly homeless, recently employed, or in danger of becoming homeless
New business clothing
New dress shoes
Briefcases and backpacks
Bicycles (used as transportation to work)
Technology including cell phones, laptops and tablets
Document retrieval (birth certificates, ID Cards, etc.)
Bus tickets for transport to support networks
Bus passes for service appointments or employment opportunities
The Courtyard is also seeking in-kind donations of personal care items, non-perishable food items, home starter items to support a fresh start in a new home, and recreational items.
