This November, HomeAid Southern Nevada celebrated its inaugural graduation luncheon for our HomeAid WORKS program. Our program, which launched in October, came to fruition due to the generous donation of HomeAid America through the Lennar Foundation and The Framing Contractors Association of Southern Nevada. Our goal is to provide individuals experiencing homelessness the basic and essential skills needed to start a career in the construction industry.
For our initial class, we partnered with Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth, and HELP of Southern Nevada to recruit youth experiencing homelessness to participate in a 4-week general construction course with an emphasis on carpentry. The also received their OSHA 10 training on the fifth week. By providing each individual with a solid foundation, career support, and meaningful employment in the construction industry, we hope to increase their chances of permanently exiting homelessness. We want to see these individuals healed and thriving.
