I toured the new facility. It's wonderful what this organization is doing for the children. There were numerous volunteers and they seemed happy and connected with the children. There were many "stations" that helped stimulate and enhance the children's abilities. Overall, a fantastic organization for Nevada!

NBCF is such a wonderful organization doing amazing work within our community. I have had the experience of volunteering with the organization a few times now and not only do they make the volunteer experience seamless, they do an amazing job of educating volunteers on what the organization does. I was invited back for the open house of their new school and I am very excited to see the visual impaired students interact with those who are not impaired and assist them on how to adjust to different situations.

This is one of the beset organizations in Las Vegas and I am very excited for all that is to come in their future.

We first became involved with NVBCF two years ago, when we volunteered for an event. We were so impressed at how smoothly the event ran, there were a lot of items to choose from during the silent auction and since we were volunteering we were able to bid!! My husband and I volunteer to honor our daughter, Brooke, who was killed 8/9/13 in Anchorage, AK. There are many nonprofits that support children in the LV area (one of Brooke's favorite causes) but this one provides exceptional support to children/families, the community, and volunteers as well. They very much appreciate us, we look forward to special projects/events and the staff are super fun to interact with! We are so very thankful we found this organization and plan to support them for a very long time.

Volunteering to work side-by-side with the children that NBCF serves has always been a great experience. The children are full of energy and amazing personalities that more people in the world could use. Volunteering during the recreational hours is a blast and a great way to get to know the children. The staff at NBCF are phenomenal as well. Everything is structured well for the programs they provide and the environment that they create for the students, staff, and volunteers is full of love, acceptance, understanding, and encouragement.
