APRIL 2023

From the Executive Director

We’re closing out another engaging month of affordable housing work and are looking forward to our Affordable Housing Day at the Legislature on May 1st.

Our April Lunch & Learn is this Wednesday at noon. Does investing in supportive housing, permanent housing solutions, avoid more costly crisis intervention? Join us as we hear the actual results of an assessment done with the Denver Social Impact Bond and their Supportive Housing initiative.  

And for those of you who follow our ElevateNV program, we’re excited to share some amazing survey results from our program participants. Stay tuned…ElevateNV is readying for its Regional Learning Collaboratives and more exciting trainings!

Lastly, a special shout-out to our NHC Members! We love sharing the amazing work you’re doing and appreciate the support of both our new and renewing members. Thank you!

See you next month,


We may be in different vehicles, in different lanes, going different speeds, but we are all moving in one direction: DESTINATION: Housing. Join us on May 1st to share, listen and learn with our State Legislators and Special Guests. With so many bills in front of them on a daily basis, our elected officials count on your voices to help them understand their role in the solutions that move us along the road to DESTINATION: Housing.

Supportive Housing: A Proven Cost Effective Investment

A review of the Denver Social Impact Bond Program

Wednesday, April 26th

12:00 - 12:45pm via Zoom

Join us for a topic that we all instinctively feel must be true, but is it really – does investing in supportive housing, permanent housing solutions, for a person living with a disabling behavioral or physical health condition who experiences homelessness, at-risk of homelessness or unnecessary institutionalization, help our communities avoid more costly crisis interventions?

Our mountain west partners in Denver recently implemented a strategic supportive housing initiative through the Denver Social Impact Bond Program, which included robust assessment and analysis of the results. CSH and Enterprise Community Partners (ECP) served as co-intermediaries for the project, working together to ensure the quality of the housing and services and promote positive outcomes for tenants. CSH focused on project management and overall project support while ECP oversaw fiscal management. We are grateful to hear directly from CSH as they share an overview of the project and the cost avoidance per person that was realized.

Right now with Assembly Bill 310, Nevada has an opportunity to establish the infrastructure for strategic investments in supportive housing to align with the good work already being done, build capacity of our nonprofits delivering quality services, incentivize more supportive housing development and measure the outcomes.
