The city of Las Vegas currently ranks eight among major American metropolitan areas for the largest numbers of homeless people.
While homelessness afflicts people from all walks of life, Project 150 tackles the effect of homelessness on youth and serves more than 6,000 homeless high school students in Nevada.
In unison with our long-term partnership with Habitat For Humanity Las Vegas, we will be taking part in a donation drive for Project 150 to assist in their effort to help the displaced and disadvantaged youth in Las Vegas.
Please join us in helping to serve their mission.

About Project 150
Project 150 is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization that was organized in December 2011 when the founders Don Purdue and Pat Spargur 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 3,400 registered homeless and 3,100 non-registered homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged students in 59 high schools in Southern Nevada and 20 in Reno.
There are over 15,019 registered homeless students in the Las Vegas valley, over 3,400of those are in high school. High School is Tough Enoughwithout 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 students. Our mission is to offer support and services to homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students so they have what they need to continue school and be successful in life.
