In March 2014, HomeAid Southern Nevada began its annual shelter build project- the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY) Drop In
Center Expansion. This project included renovation of their existing facility and brand new addition to double the drop in center’s size (2300 sq. ft to 4650 sq ft). This drop
in center serves over 5000 visits per year from homeless youth ages 12-21. These include runaways, abused/neglected teens, human trafficking victims and abandoned
youth. The drop in center is a place where these youth can receive food, clothing, hygiene items, case management, counseling, ID cards, tutoring, emergency housing
and ultimately the chance at a successful life.
Our work on this project was a combination of tremendous teamwork and partnership for an often forgotten population. We secured in kind donations of time, labor
and materials in the amount of $275,049- a 71% completely donated piece of this $387,000 facility. HomeAid Southern Nevada also successfully helped the drop in
center increase visits and outreach by 40% which brings it from 5000 visits per year to 7000! And finally, we brought together 5 different home builders and over 50
trades, subcontractors and suppliers for the best team to make this dream a reality.
