Mission: Nevada Youth Empowerment Project provides residential and out patient programming and education to prepare willing older youth for independent self sufficient living.
Results: Approximately 60 young women have lived at NYEP. We have 7 "successful" graduates, meaning they moved out as planned. We are however communicating with young women who lived at NYEP and left abruptly but benefited from out programming, none-the-less. We are in the process of collecting a survey monkey from all of the young women we've ever served to see where they are with: employment, housing, school and current needs. Check out our website for more info!
