Hospitality House

“As far as being happy, I am.”

On April Fool’s Day, Kelly wasn’t met with any tricks, but he was met with a new home!

Kelly moved into a house with a few roommates on April 1, and while he jokes in the following video that he’d be happier if he won the lottery, he’s happy, nonetheless.

“The Hospitality House did help me out me a lot,” said Kelly. “Without them, I don’t know what I would have done. I was convinced that if I had to sleep outside, I would have died.”

Kelly will undergo heart surgery soon and continues to recover from a brain injury, but he remains optimistic that his future is bright. If you’d like to help more guests like Kelly move into a home, please,  GIVE NOW>

Building a Brighter Future Together 

Hospitality House recently teamed up with County of Nevada, the City of Grass Valley and Regional Housing Authority with a shared goal to build a welcoming day services center and 41-units of affordable housing. This project aligns with Hospitality House’s mission to assist homeless residents in transitioning from homelessness to housing, and the long-term vision of providing permanent supportive housing to County residents. The Nevada County Board of Supervisors gave final approval on the project on Jan. 22, 2019, which means Hospitality House and its partners are moving forward to bring this project to fruition.

Hospitality House

Hospitality House is a community effort to help homeless Nevada County residents get back on their feet.  We provide emergency shelter and a sober environment for up to 69 men, women, and children who come daily to Utah’s Place, our facility located between Grass Valley and Nevada City.

Our program offers nourishing meals, medical services, a housing program, life skills and job training classes, plus outreach to homeless people in our county who do not use our overnight services.

We have been going strong since 2005, fueled by the conviction that all people, housed and unhoused, are deserving of dynamic compassion.

“Hospitality House encourages job hunting, apartment hunting, volunteerism and personal uprightness.  I am a better person than when I first walked through the doors, with respect for the rent dollar and for myself.  I leave knowing that I am worthy of being housed, and I am a solid, stable, admirable person who does not quit”
