11,000+ Homeless Students in Clark County. The Problem Isn’t Going Away on its Own.
Project 150 is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization that was organized in December 2011 when the founders heard about 150 homeless high school students at Rancho High School in Las Vegas that were in need of support over the Christmas Break. The effort has expanded to helping over 2,500 in 45 high schools when it was understood that the problems these students faced were prevalent across the valley.
Will you help Project 150?
There are over 11,200 homeless students in the Las Vegas valley, over 2,500 of those are in high school. High School is Tough Enough without having to worry about where you are going to sleep at night. Project 150 was created out of our community’s desire to help these kids. Our mission is to offer support and services to these homeless high school students so they have what they need to continue school and be successful in life.
Project 150 is seeking volunteers to serve in the Volunteer Center, area high schools, and to assist efforts to support students.
