Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Children & Youth Services, Health, Homeless & Housing, Rehabilitative Care, Temporary Housing, Youth Development Programs

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!

Target demographics: older female youth become self sufficient

Direct beneficiaries per year: 15 older girls, 5 agencies and 3 service clubs.

Geographic areas served: Northern Nevada

Programs: housing, food, clothing, daily needs, adult supervision/guidance, success skills training, performance monitoring, parental support, resource assistance, professional mentors, opportunities to apply new skills, transition help, etc.
