Operation Home!

Operation HOME! is a regional initiative of Help Hope Home to find homes for 2,022 high-risk homeless Southern Nevadans at increased risk of COVID-19 by the end of 2022.

Thirteen organizations have received CARES Act funds to permanently house high-risk homeless households using Rapid-Rehousing and Progressive Engagement interventions, which are national best practices for rapidly housing and stabilizing households experiencing homelessness.

Join the effort! Here are some ways that you can support Operation HOME!

    1. Partner as a landlord. If you own rental properties, there are many benefits to partnering with our LEAPS program! List your property for free at https://snv.padmission.com and learn more about our Risk Mitigation Fund at https://helphopehome.org/landlord-general-resources/.
    2. Donate furniture. Please donate gently used furniture to Deseret Industries Thrift Stores. To support Operation HOME! Deseret Industries will be providing vouchers for households to shop for the items they need in their new homes.
    3. Build “Welcome Home” Kits. These are gift baskets that include all the basic household essentials someone needs in their new home. Learn more at https://www.justserve.org/projects/77e57d1d-8ab8-44ae-bb07-bc750b1069e3
