Nevada Youth Empowerment Program receives donation
June 28, 2017
Nevada Youth Empowerment Program (NYEP), a community-based Reno youth service provider that assists homeless young people, received the largest donation in its history from the Jacobs Family Foundation for Children. The donation, combined with a community match, could total $850,000 for the youth service provider by the end of this year.
Now the program needs the help of the community to raise additional funds to match a portion of the foundation's donation and set the wheels in motion for an intergenerational affordable housing project to serve low-income young people and seniors.
