HomeAid Southern Nevada's Back to School Drive


HomeAid Southern Nevada recently held our 2017 “Back to School Success Drive” in partnership with Project 150 a local service provide that serves the needs of approximately 3,500 homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students.

Throughout the month of July HomeAid Southern Nevada community partners donated over 500 backpacks, a mountain of school supplies, over 600 of pairs of socks, underwear, hygiene kits and other basic essentials.

The HomeAid Southern Nevada volunteers served 258 hours during the final week, sorting and assembling backpacks to make sure each student had what they needed to have a successful start in the 2017-2018 school year.

Both organizations believe that a solid education will provide these students the best opportunity to break the cycle of homelessness. HomeAid Southern Nevada also collaborates with Project 150 on their ELEVATE workforce development program and Project 150’s scholarship program for students who want to continue their education beyond high school.
