Who We Are

Who is Coordinated Living of Southern Nevada?

(“CLSN”) is a Nevada non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the development of affordable housing so that low-income Nevada residents can live in decent, safe, and sanitary housing that promotes their health, security, happiness, individual growth, autonomy, choice and dignity. Since its formation in 2014, CLSN, Inc. has partnered with Ovation Contracting Inc. (“Ovation”) to develop thirteen affordable senior projects totaling 1,871 units. Thirteen of the projects are in operations, one is under construction with an expected opening in early 2023 and one began construction in November of 2022.

In addition to the development of affordable senior housing, CLSN employs an Executive Director whose responsibility is to identify and bring resources to connect residents with local governments and non-profits that help meet their basic needs. Ovation Property Management is the management company partnering with our communities and employs service coordinators to plan a full calendar of on and off-site activities that enhance the quality of the residents’ lives. Arts & crafts programming, health, safety, and nutrition workshops, fitness classes, community gardening, holiday celebrations, outings and financial literacy classes are among the many activities offered. There are also numerous volunteer opportunities within the community and with some of our partners which provide the residents with a sense of purpose and a way to “give back”.

In 2018 CLSN began work on the Food Rescue program where it partners with Three Square to distribute food to residents at Ovation’s senior properties. This is food that would otherwise have been discarded by grocery stores, and it goes a long way to combat food insecurity which is prevalent among seniors. We are currently distributing approximately thirty thousand (30,000) pounds monthly. This includes the food we distribute through other programs with Three Square and Helping Hands. We are also excited that some of CLSN’s community partners have selected Ovation communities to launch pilot programs. For example, the Healthy Brains Program, a partnership between Three Square, the Lou-Ruvo Cleveland Clinic and UNR Cooperative Extension, recently taught classes about brain-healthy foods. The Stay Strong, Stay Healthy Program through Nevada Senior Services, Inc., also held an 8 week strength training program designed for older adults.

CLSN also collects and distribute donations of furniture and household items to needy residents, provides emergency rental assistance, and plans to add other services as needed in the future.
