Mission Statement

To establish a greater awareness in the Las Vegas area of the need to intervene and interact with those stricken with homelessness, joblessness and hopelessness, and to provide them with nourishment, essential survival items,

Description

We are a fun group of people building friendships amongst each other while looking to make a difference in our homeless community. We want every group member to know they are a valuable, equal, and integral part of our mission and know that we strongly encourage new ideas and fresh outlooks on our visions and goals. We WANT to hear from you!!

We are so excited and grateful to be a part of this great cause in Las Vegas! We are currently meeting twice a week to package and distribute food to the homeless on the street and the overflow of the shelter. As we continue to grow we will also been able to provide them with other essential survival items such as clothing, shoes, blankets, and toiletries.

While distributing the food bags we have been talking with them, in some cases, interviewing them on video, to hear their stories and to better understand their needs and prospects. What we have discovered is that the majority of our homeless are not there by choice, and just want the opportunity to go back to work. In the coming months we will be taking steps to better equip the homeless in their hopes to find work
