The Speakers Bureau on Homelessness is a program designed to spread vital information regarding homelessness, the experiences of those who have been homeless, and, most importantly, what can be done to end homelessness.  The Speakers Bureau is comprised of experts, clinicians, and advocates who work to prevent and mitigate homelessness, as well as people who can attest to the experience of homelessness with their own personal stories.

The Speakers Bureau operates to promote its important message to as many people in our community as possible.  If you would like a speaker, or speakers, to present to your organization or group, please complete the Request for Speaker Form and make your selection from some of Southern Nevada’s finest advocates who are fighting to end homelessness.

Operation HOME! is a community-wide effort to quickly and permanently house members of the Southern Nevada community who are in need of a home.
Our community is investing resources to get and keep tenants housed. Financial assistance, tenant case management and landlord support is available to make this happen.

Help find homes for 2,022 unhoused individuals by the end of 2022.

In Southern Nevada, we need more affordable rental units to help people in our community become financially independent and thrive. Our community needs more studio, 1 and 2 bedroom rentals as well as bigger units.
