The Nevada Homeless Alliance was established in 1992. Since its establishment, the Nevada Homeless Alliance has convened community partners in the planning and execution of 29 Project Homeless Connects. Over the last five years alone, these events have assisted more than 15,000 individuals experiencing homelessness access vital resources and services. We bring people together to advance solutions to homelessness. We do this by partnering closely with federal, state, and local government, business, philanthropic, civic, faith-based organizations, and people who are currently experiencing homelessness and those who have in the past.
