At HOPES, we believe the most effective health care is both comprehensive and compassionate and that approach means we don’t stop at disease management, preventative care, or even behavioral health services. Housing is health care.
Washoe County has consistently high rates of poverty, homelessness and untreated mental illness when compared to national averages. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has only made it worse, resulting in increased health disparities faced by the unsheltered.
As the first tiny home, bridge housing project in Northern Nevada, Hope Springs is helping our unhoused community members find shelter. Located near downtown Reno at 1920 E 4th St, Hope Springs fills a hole in the Northern Nevada housing continuum, providing safe, dignified housing for the most disenfranchised members of our community.
