Housing is healthcare

How can you get a job if you have no mailing address? How can you stay sober if you have nowhere to keep your medication? How can you deal with your anxiety if you don’t have a safe place to sleep? Hope Springs looks at community health in a complete way. We help meet the most basic needs of unhoused people so they can begin to rebuild their lives.

Located near downtown Reno, Hope Springs fills a gap in northern Nevada housing, providing safe, dignified transitional housing for members of our community. Our single occupancy tiny home community is a safe place for people to build a stable foundation for long-term overall health and well-being.

A harm reduction approach

Hope Springs is a program that helps people stay safe and make better choices for themselves by;

  1. setting realistic goals
  2. validating positive steps and incremental changes

While harm reduction was initially implemented around drug use, it now has a wider range of applications, including sex, diet, health, and many aspects of self-care. We embrace diversity and advocate for medically underserved groups in our community.

Intensive Case Management

Using a team approach, Hope Springs provides Case Management that supports each resident throughout their stay. The goal of Hope Springs Case Management is to help clients achieve an optimum quality of life by developing care plans, enhancing life skills, addressing health and mental health needs, engaging in meaningful activities, and building social and community relations. Hope Springs residents meet with their case manager weekly with the ultimate goal of securing sustainable income and affordable permanent housing by the end of their six-month stay.

Addiction is a treatable, chronic medical disease involving the brain, genetics, the environment, and individual life experiences. Our Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) program uses FDA-approved medications to treat substance use disorder and support recovery. MAT is a combination of medication and behavioral therapy. It is an effective, evidenced-based treatment option for individuals with alcohol and opioid use disorders. Our whole-patient, team approach helps provide Hope Springs residents with the tools needed for long-term recovery and success.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed to address emotional issues, substance use, and trauma. This program provides Hope Springs residents a level of care between traditional outpatient therapy and inpatient hospitalization. IOP enrollees attend individual therapy and group therapy sessions that are tailored to meet each patient’s needs three times a week, for 8-12 continuous weeks.

Healthy Money Habits

Healthy Money Habits (HMH) is a free program available to Hope Springs residents. We work with residents to help them stabilize their finances to improve their overall health and well-being. Using financial education and financial coaching, HMH addresses the connection between health and finances, decreasing negative health outcomes and stress due to financial problems.

Hope Springs residents are provided with mental health services utilizing our team of therapists who are trained in trauma-informed, patient-centered care, as well as harm reduction, substance use disorders, suicidal ideations, and overall psychological well-being. Hope Springs residents meet with a therapist weekly (or more frequently if needed) throughout their stay to move toward their defined goals.

All Hope Springs residents receive a thorough medical screening at HOPES Clinic prior to program entry. This screening process is designed to identify problems early on when they may be easier to treat. It may also identify serious medical conditions early, even before symptoms appear. Knowledge is power and screening allows patients to make informed choices about their health.
