LAS VEGAS (KTNV)  — Veterans Village is expanding to help the homeless situation in Las Vegas.

The nonprofit organization said 150 additional units will be added to its SHARE Village Las Vegas.

These spaces will be in addition to its original plan of 477 existing affordable housing units in its community master plan to help end homelessness in Southern Nevada.

“We have been diligently and strategically designing, planning, and implementing our expansion of new signature comprehensive housing with supportive services to all people in need of affordable housing in our community,” said Founder and President of Veterans Village Arnold Stalk.

He also said the organization’s plans will not only serve veterans but the entire community with accelerating the timeline for the units following the deadly fire at the Alpine Village on Saturday.
