Currently, the Courtyard is open seven days a week 24 hours a day. Get help by calling 702-229-6117 or courtyardHRC@lasvegasnevada.gov.

By offering a one-stop shop with access to medical, housing and employment services through a variety partners, the cycle of homelessness can be broken. The initial phase of the Courtyard opened in 2017 and now the city is moving forward with phase 2. This build-out will result in new buildings with classrooms, an intake center, shower and restroom facilities, and areas for service providers to assist homeless individuals. The Courtyard will also feature mailboxes and a pet kennel. Read more about the expansion here.
While construction is occurring at 1401 Las Vegas Blvd. North, the Courtyard will continue to operate at its current location at Foremaster Lane and Las Vegas Boulevard, across from Catholic Charities.
Since August 2017, the city and service providers at the Courtyard have been assisting in getting homeless off the streets and into housing. Through the Courtyard, the city has connected those in need to mental health providers, legal assistance and job information.
