Review for Street Teens A Nevada Non-Profit Corporation, Las Vegas, NV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I just love Street Teens! it was in 2003 that I started volunteering there. I started at the old location and we had sometimes up to 20 kids coming in each night. I can't imagine what these kids would have done if Street Teens was not there. There is such a great need for this type of organization. It meant a great deal to me to know that they were getting a hot meal, a hot shower, clothing, resources to help them find jobs, a place to rest their head, food, toiletries and an ear to just listen. These kids became family. All the people that are associated with this organization have their hearts fully into these kids as I did. I became a donor and to this day will volunteer or help in any way needed to help these kids that have to live on the streets in Las Vegas. They are now in a newer location which is very nice for the kids. We need to come together as a community and help. If you are looking to find a place to make a difference, please think of Street Teens. You will not be sorry and you will put a huge smile on a teens face.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Well....If I had more money I would love to provide transportation for these kids to get to and from the shelter and it sure would be nice to be able to extend the hours and even offer overnight stays. All of these things take money. Times have been tough for everyone so we do what we can.
