Our Mission And Vision

Welcome To Nevada H.A.N.D., Inc.

Formed in 1993, Nevada H.A.N.D., Inc. is a non-profit corporation with the mission to improve the lives of low-income individuals by providing affordable housing solutions and supportive services.

We currently own and/or operate over 3,100 housing units in 32 affordable properties.

As a Nevada-based non-profit organization and HUD-certified Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO), Nevada HAND receives preferences for affordable housing development dollars under the Nevada Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program, HOME and Low-Income Trust Fund Program, and the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco’s Affordable Housing Program.
