☷ Searchlight, Nevada - Fremont Street Motel Turning into Bridge Housing for the Homeless 25 May 2022

Searchlight, , state Nevada
| 12| 2
   An old Fremont Street motel is being turned into a bridge housing program to help homeless individuals transition from sleeping in a shelter or on the streets to permanent housing .
   This project is the latest in a series of County actions to address homelessness in our community .
   “This program will provide temporary housing and the necessary support services to help people get off the streets , ” said Commissioner William McCurdy II , whose district includes the former motel . “It is important for us to support programs that provide real and tested solutions to homelessness . ”
   The ongoing renovations of the former Safari Motel at 2001 E . Fremont St . will turn the former daily/weekly rental property into a BETterment Community , providing clients with bridge housing for up to 90 days , counseling , and employment assistance among other services . The program is expected to serve as many as 46 clients at a time , and up to 184 individuals a year . Eligible clients will be homeless adults without children .
   The County is in the process of securing the former Safari Motel for the new BETterment Community and is working with the property owner who is upgrading the rooms . Clients are expected to move in this summer .
   The County contracted with local homeless services provider U . S . Vets to operate the BETterment Community program , which is modeled after a similar program U . S . Vets operates for veterans . The U . S . Vets’ program has served more than 5 , 000 veterans since 2001 , and 80 percent of those served by their program transition to permanent housing each year .
   The County has allocated $4 million to fund the BETterment Community program for the next two years . The program could be extended for an additional three years .
   During the past two years , the County has taken many steps to address homelessness and the lack of affordable housing in Southern Nevada . Those actions have included providing temporary housing to more than 9 , 000 homeless individuals and families , allocating more than $300 million for rent , mortgage and utility assistance for more than 60 , 000 local households , and setting aside $140 million to support affordable housing developments that will create permanent housing solutions for residents of all income levels .
