The Reno City Council voted unanimously Wednesday to approve the construction of a new village designed to provide sustainable short-term housing and support services for homeless residents.
Hope Springs will be developed and operated by Northern Nevada HOPES and will include 30 units, in addition to a central facility with showers, restrooms, a kitchen and community space, including a garden.
A screening process will be used to determine readiness for program participation.
Residents will likely remain in the homes an average of four to six months before moving to more permanent housing as it becomes available.
Program participants will receive intensive case management, including the coordination of medical care, behavioral health, workforce development and more.
