One of the goals of the NACE National and the Las Vegas Chapter is to support our local communities through charitable efforts and volunteerism. Our members have been generous throughout the years in providing donations of money, resources and time to a variety of local charities to help the community.
For 2020, the Board of Directors for NACE has updated our monthly fundraising efforts to include a portion donated to our community service efforts. Each month, when you purchase raffle tickets, 25% of proceeds go directly into the budget for the Community Service Committee to help fund our ongoing efforts to support the local community.
As part of our commitment to give back to the community, the Las Vegas Chapter of NACE supports a variety of local charities through fundraising efforts for donations as well as participation and donation of time and services. We actively support Street Teens, Olive Crest, Candlelighters, Strides Against Breast Cancer
Here in Nevada, there are 4,500 children in the child welfare system. Lost and alone, kids and teens in our community need the love of a strong family to protect and nurture them, and give them hope for a bright future. Together we can put a stop to child abuse and ensure that families are whole, children are protected, and the cycle of abuse is broken.
Our focus is on addressing each child, teen, and parent’s unique needs One Life at a Time®. With your help, beautiful transformation stories are not only possible, but happening every day.
Thank you for your commitment to the children and families in our community
S.T.R.E.E.T. is an acronym for our approach to helping homeless and at-risk teens. Las Vegas teens moved into a high risk street life over a period of time and rarely by their own choice. It takes time, resources, commitment and a personalized step by step approach to help them move off the streets.
- Survival: We provide immediate support to help them survive.
- Trust: We build relationships based on mutual respect and trust.
- Resources: We provide the resources they need.
- Education: We provide education and opportunities to rebuild self-esteem.
- Empowerment: We empower them to move forward. The Results.
- They: become effective members of their communities.
As 80% of youth on the street does not have a safe home to return to, the goal is to supply hot meals and donations of supplies throughout the year to support these at risk youth. The Las Vegas Chapter supports Street Teens throught the following activities:
- Hot Food Deliveries: Each month, members of the Las Vegas Chapter donate hot meals and desserts for the monthly dinner for Street Teens and will continue to donate throughout the year. Donations this year include:
