What have we accomplished and what are we doing TODAY…
North Las Vegas Housing Services Inc. was created through an initiative by the City of North Las Vegas local residents and Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation that is now known as NeighborWorks America.
NHS formally changed its name to Neighborhood Housing Services of Southern Nevada, Inc. (NHSSN) and expanded its service boundaries to include North Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Henderson and throughout Clark County.
NHSSN merged with Golden Rule, who was the very 1st nonprofit agency that created Transitional housing in Southern Nevada. Through that merger NHSSN acquired Parsons Place, now know as The Betty-Jeanne, which 59 micro-units located in Downtown Las Vegas.
NHSSN began assisting the community in foreclosure counseling. Due to the recession this line of business open doors to our community. To date we have assisted over 1800 households. We offer free one:one counseling and will contact clients lender to help identify best outcome for our residents.
In that same year NHSSN, continues to partner with local jurisdictions and provided HOME Down Payment Funds to North Las Vegas Residents.
Primary focus shifted into helping those in need of foreclosure counseling. As always, there is a demand for homeownership so NHSSN balanced both lines of business. During this time, NHSSN partnered with Clark County and administered NSP Down Payment Funds (Neighborhood Stabilization Funds) to include partnering with the City of North Las Vegas and continued to revitlize and rehabilitate existing units in their portfolio. The goal to date is to continue to “GREEN” the properties to help assist agency and clients off set overall cost to manage and to live in.
NHSSN received over 6.4 million from NeighborWorks America through Wells Fargo Foundation to administer down payment in the City of Las Vegas. These funds were exhausted in three years helping over 500+ families.
The agency also continued their partnership with the City of North Las Vegas and was able to rehabilitate Belmont property, Daley Property and Jefferson Community by adding GREENING to the property. Certain items like energy efficient water heaters, panels on roof tops and internal ammenaties to help our residents save money.
In three years, several projects happened. The agency collaborated with HomeAid of Southern Nevada which is the non-profit arm of the Nevada Home builders Association. Through this partnership a total of five home-builders assisted in rehabbing our Calcaterra Community, which is six building and a total of 42 units. KB HOMES, Richmond American Homes, Century Community, Lennar and Pulte Homes donated over $750k along with countless hours towards the rehabilitation of this community.
In 2017 to 2018, we received our 2nd round of LIFT Funds through NeighborWorks America and Wells Fargo Foundation. It took only one year however the agency was able to assist over 560+ families with down payment assistance and achieve Home ownership throughout Southern Nevada.
NHSSN also continued to acquire, rehabilitate and sell single family homes to our existing clients.
In early 2017, Parsons Place which is now renamed to The Betty-Jeanne was a 57-unit apartment complex that caught fire. From 2017 to date the agency has been able to rehabilitate the building. The agency added two more units, totaling 59 micro-units with one being fully ADA compliant. NHSSN still continues to provide down payment assistance through existing partners like, WISH Funds, remaining LIFT Funds and REACH Funds with East West Bank. Homebuyer education is still offered online through EHOME America. In addition, we also offer Financial Literacy and we administer emergency funds for a National Hotel/Casino.
