I am very proud to recognize that The City of Las Vegas Government has received the Audrey Nelson Community Development Award through the National Community Development Association (NCDA) for the establishment of the city’s Recuperative Care Center.

I first lead the city team in 2018 to scout the country for resources and ideas to benefit the Las Vegas homeless community. In Phoenix, we discovered a “Respite” Center. We brought the concept back to Las Vegas and opened our own Recuperative Care Center in Ward 5. It's amazing to see the success of the care center—​providing help to 376 patients as of January 2022.

Way to go team!
We are truly honored to receive the Audrey Nelson Community Development Achievement Award from the National Community Development Association for the Florence First programs.

Our humbleness pales in comparison to the grit and resilience shown by our and ! recipients and the entire Florence business community in navigating the economic impact of Covid-19.

This post concludes our focus on National Community Development Week and projects funded by CDBG/HOME. Today we’ll take a personal look at how CDBG-funded projects can make changes to real people’s lives.

Kelsey is a first-generation homeowner, single mom, and full-time home healthcare provider. She wanted to purchase a home to create a safer, more stable environment for her son, but her income did not allow her to buy a home that would suit their needs. So, Kelsey called NeighborWorks Great Falls and was able to purchase the perfect home with the Owners in Partnership (OIP) program through Housing and Urban Development. Now, she is raising her son in a stable home, and that means everything.

Thank you for following our posts this week. If you are interested in any of the programs we have highlighted or have any questions, please contact our CDBG/HOME office at 455-8443. National Community Development Association
