Here’s some good news for the most vulnerable among us. On July 14, the Shannon West Homeless Youth Center will open at 1640 E. Flamingo Road. The 37,000 square-foot facility is eight years in the making and will offer housing for up to 166 young people, along with education, employment and health services. How do current beneficiaries feel about the move? “They’re excited,” says Fuilala Riley, president and CEO of Help of Southern Nevada. “They’re amazed, because it’s new construction. The current facility wasn’t well-built when it was new.” For more information or to learn about volunteer and giving opportunities, visit helpsonv.org.
