Move 4 Less assists HELP of Southern Nevada clients

Seven former homeless adults are sleeping in their own beds in their own apartments. They are clients of HELP of Southern Nevada, who have entered the nonprofit organization’s Hospital to Home housing program.

To make their transition from homelessness a reality, Move 4 Less assisted HELP of Southern Nevada by moving new mattresses and frames into the seven client apartments.

“We’re so appreciative of Move 4 Less’ assistance in helping us transition seven of our homeless clients into the next phase of self-sufficiency,” said Mindy Torres, homeless services director of HELP of Southern Nevada. “With numerous deadlines pending for our clients, Move 4 Less made supporting our clients on short notice a smooth and worry-free experience, and mover Drew Potts was professional and so considerate.”

One of its many programs, Hospital to Home provides intensive case management and rapid rehousing for medically fragile individuals or families who must have a medical diagnosis and be referred by Health Plan of Nevada.

“We were delighted to assist HELP of Southern Nevada and its clients as they work to break out of the cycle of homelessness,” said Avi Cohen and Moti Perez, Move 4 Less co-owners. “Given our moving resources, Moving Our Community is the perfect way for us and our great team to help others, particularly during the pandemic.”
