The Village on Sage Street: An innovative housing option for low-income individuals in Reno, NV

The Village on Sage Street opened in August 2019 to provide stability through housing to low-income individuals as part of the Community Foundation of Western Nevada’s innovative solutions for housing in the Reno area. This unique coed “dorm-style” facility is comprised of eight modular buildings with 216 small single-occupancy units for individuals that are at least 18 years of age. The Village is primarily designed to serve working people earning minimum wage, or those with other income sources such as social security or disability, as a low-income housing option. The Village will provide a foundation and stability for its residents and contribute to the overall well being of the entire community.
