The Issue: Homelessness in Clark County

In 2011, southern Nevada was home to more than 11,000 individuals experiencing homelessness—living in shelters, on the streets, or hidden in tents or vehicles on private property—according to data from the Clark County government. Additionally, a report from KLAS-TV showed that more than 1,500 children in the Clark County School District have nowhere to call home.

The Campaign: Providing Winter Outerwear to Teenagers

If 38 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then Project 150 can provide a winter coat, a pair of gloves, a beanie, and a scarf to five teenagers experiencing homelessness. High-school liaisons will distribute the outerwear to students in need at the organization’s 15 partner high schools. With a new set of winter clothes, the students will be able to travel to school without suffering in the cold. Each additional $75 raised will fund a coat, gloves, beanie, and scarf for another teenager experiencing homelessness.

Project 150

In December 2011, a local television news show reported on the 5,000 students who were homeless in the Las Vegas Valley, and focused on the 150 teenagers attending Rancho High School who were homeless or displaced. The community responded by sending aid to many of the teens’ families. Moved by their plight, a team of concerned individuals founded Project 150 to help garner support for the 17 families who had not yet received aid as the holiday season approached. The founding effort of Project 150 successfully raised three truckloads of supplies for these families.

Today, Project 150 provides material support for more than 850 homeless and displaced students at 15 area high schools. It distributes a range of necessities including underwear, food items, and school supplies to homeless youth throughout the region.
