|To prevent homelessness, preserve families, promote self-sufficiency, and provide hope for all in our community to have a safe place to call home.
|In an effort to provide a support network for those needing assistance in Henderson, HopeLink was founded in 1991 by the late Barbara Gomez and Pamela Erickson. Designated five years later by the State of Nevada as a full service Family Resource Center, HopeLink operates in that capacity today in sites all over the Las Vegas valley. Providing expert case management, a complete base of referrals and in-house funding of assistance for clients in verified crisis, we provide turnkey assistance and services to the unreached and underserved including free classes in parenting, financial guidance, GED/HSE prep, nutrition and practical life skills to help move people out of poverty and into self-sufficiency. The current board consists of 11 members. In addition, there are 3 advisory board members and five honorary board members, including the late Barbara Gomez.
|Board members are the fiduciaries who steer the organization towards a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, and legal governance and financial management policies, as well as by making sure the nonprofit has adequate resources to advance its mission.

|We strive for 100% board giving, but have no strict guidelines around financial contributions.
|Life below the poverty line is a ‘normal’ existence for many families and seniors. These individuals may face unexpected life crises, unemployment or income instability, that bring them to the brink of hunger or homelessness. For decades, we’ve worked to change the ‘normal’ for thousands of individuals in our community each year. Our board makes an investment in time and other resources to allow HopeLink to house and provide stabilizing resources to Southern Nevada residents while teaching them the skills that can keep them out of homelessness.
