HomeAid Southern Nevada to renovate homeless shelter

HomeAid Southern Nevada, the official outreach partner of the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association, has announced its plan to renovate the Poverello House in Henderson. HomeAid will provide time and materials to improve amenities at the day shelter, benefiting homeless individuals.

Through in-kind donations from trade partners, the renovation of the Poverello House will begin this month and upon completion, the 1,334-square-foot space will better provide safe, clean resources including laundry facilities, showers and places to relax or enjoy a hot meal.

Homebuilder Richmond American Homes will serve as the build captain for the project, managing the construction efforts to improve the facilities. Richmond American Homes will oversee the critical repairs and maintenance work for the renovation project including: kitchen renovation with new cabinetry, new flooring throughout the space, interior and exterior panting as well as landscaping around the building. An on-site storage unit also will be built in the backyard area.

“Charitable institutions such as Poverello House provide an incredible helping hand to our local community by serving those who need it most,” said Nat Hodgson, executive director at HomeAid Southern Nevada. “We are proud to provide what we can to further support individuals experiencing homelessness through the generous support of the homebuilding industry.”

HomeAid Southern Nevada regularly provides support and assists with outreach efforts to serve vulnerable men, women and children in the community. For more information, visit
