About the Organization
Since 1997, Northern Nevada HOPES has been on the front lines of community health, caring for those with the fewest resources and options, many of whom are living in crisis every day.
From our early days as a single-room HIV/AIDS clinic to the 38,000 sq foot community health center we are today, HOPES continues to serve Northern Nevadas vulnerable, overlooked and underserved.
We tackle our communitys hard problems with resolve and compassion from chronic disease to addiction.
Northern Nevada HOPES provides affordable, high-quality, medical, behavioral health, and support services for all.
Northern Nevada HOPES is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).

About the Community
Reno was named one of the ten most livable mid-sized cities in the United States for a minimum of three consecutive years recently by livability.com. Beyond just a bustling downtown, eclectic restaurant scene, and abundant outdoor activities, Reno also boasts a thriving job market, short commute times and affordable housing.
Besides boasting a myriad of activities within the city limits, Reno is also less than an hour away from all that northern Nevada has to offer. Within an hours drive, there are more than a dozen ski resorts; Lake Tahoe; the state capital, Carson City; thousands of mountain biking and hiking trails; several lakes that are perfect for fishing and boating; and the 114-miles of the Truckee River, which runs right through the center of downtown Reno. Here you can also enjoy world-class shopping or a visit to the Nevada Museum of Art or the Sparks Heritage Museum and learn how the west was won. Couple those activities with Renos hotels, casinos and nighttime entertainment, and you have the perfect place to live.
As a newcomer to the Reno-Sparks area, the small-town feel may surprise you. You may marvel at the brick architecture of some of Renos downtown buildings, the frontier independence, the contrast of the Truckee Rivers tranquility against the neon lights or maybe just bundling up to watch the next university football game. Reno-Sparks is a great place to live, work, and raise a family.
