The Founding of Silver State Housing
Silver State Housing (SSH) was initially conceived as Orthodox Christian Charities in 1999. The name was changed in 2004 to Silver State Housing, expanding its mission that we observe today. Organizational documents state, “The Corporation is organized and shall be operated as a non-profit corporation, exclusively for charitable, religious and educational purposes, including, but not limited to, assisting churches, missionaries, and other religious organizations or ministers developing affordable housing per persons needing housing, and providing community services, counseling and religious scholarships; and providing decent and affordable housing to low- and moderate-income persons, elderly persons, and /or disabled persons.”
Silver State Housing has ownership in the properties developed and plays an integral role in short and long-term planning, development, marketing, budgeting, design, construction, property management, and supportive services. SSH attends public hearings, neighborhood meetings, Planning Commission, City Council, and County Commission. SSH prepares presentations and HOME Fund applications. SSH has a diverse board of directors with experience in architecture, law, property management, marketing, public relations, supportive services, and Section 42 Tax Code guidelines, and it includes low-income seniors who live in affordable housing communities.
Silver State Housing owns and helps operate the following senior properties: McKnight Senior Village I, II, and III (110 units, 78 units, 24 units, respectively); Santa Barbara Palms (114 units); Madison Palms (128 units); City Impact Senior Housing (66 units); and currently in development, West Sahara Senior Housing (171 units) to begin construction Fall 2022.
With over 22 years of experience, Silver State Housing’s Executive director, Lori Muehlhausen, oversees the property management staff at all the properties to coordinate and direct all the supportive services. Muehlhausen works with management staff on-site to ensure these services are carried out efficiently and in a timely manner.
