Grass Valley, Calif. Dec. 12, 2018 – On Tuesday, the Nevada County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to make Hospitality House their No Place Like Home partner. No Place Like Home is slated to dedicate up to $2 billion in bond proceeds over the years to invest in the development of permanent supportive housing for people who need mental health services and who are experiencing homelessness, or who are at-risk for chronic homelessness.
“We appreciate the County’s vote of confidence and partnership in this effort to build housing,” said Nancy Baglietto, CEO of Hospitality House. “Hospitality House has had a long-term vision of providing permanent supportive housing and given the challenge of finding permanent homes for our homeless Nevada County residents, coupled with the scarcity of available housing in general, this is a real need in our community.”
To be selected as the No Place Like Home partner, Hospitality House responded to the County’s request for proposal (RFP) earlier in the year. Hospitality House Board Chairman, Leo Granucci, bought a property for Hospitality House so they could be eligible for the RFP to be the developer and the County may be purchasing the property to improve and strengthen the competitive application for funding of the project.
“We look forward to working with the County and City to provide wraparound services in a housing setting,” added Baglietto. “No Place Like Home is the beginning of an important opportunity.” In the weeks to come, further details of this partnership will be formalized as the County works toward the No Place Like Home deadline on January 30.
Public opinion regarding homelessness and affordable housing is being sought by Hospitality House to better serve the community. The survey takes one minute to complete and is available at hhshelter.org.
