LAS VEGAS - Sept. 18, 2016 - PRLog -- WHAT:

In May of 2015 local philanthropist and developer Dr. Arnold Stalk announced his comprehensive plan to house homeless and disadvantaged United States Veterans on three sites, in downtown Las Vegas with 376 living units, and access to critical intensive supportive services.  With the recent commitments to Veterans Village from Steven Jackson formerly of the New England Patriots and Las Vegas Casino Executive Steve Wynn,  the vision to increase the goal to 1000 units is now attainable.

Dr. Arnold Stalk is the founder of SHARE a nonprofit developer that has been developing housing for special needs demographics, since 1983 with over $800,000,000 in built projects throughout the United States. Special needs housing villages to be developed in Las Vegas for:

· US Veterans (326 units open)

· Homeless Families with children

· Chronically mentally ill people

·  Single room occupancy

·  People with HIV/AIDS

·  LGBTQ Community

Arnold Stalk PhD quote:

"The single most cause of chronic poverty and homelessness in the United States is the lack of special needs housing with intensive supportive services. This a very aggressive and comprehensive plan that we are embarking on and I am confident that we can reach this goal of 1,000 units with the help of my public and private sector partners, collaborations and support from our friends in the Las Vegas valley. I am not waiting any longer to see people suffer living in the streets tunnels, hillsides, in cars and in overcrowded housing conditions.  The time to take action is now".

Development for each of these areas has been made possible through public/private collaborations in communities across the country.  Currently Dr. Stalk/SHARE is seeking additional parcels in the Las Vegas Valley to expand his comprehensive plan to meet the goal of 1000 units to house people in need.
