U.S.VETS — Las Vegas opened in 2001 and operates two residential facilities and a community support office.

The Las Vegas location operates over 330 beds of transitional and permanent housing. Employment services are provided through a workforce program that helps over 110 veterans return to employment each year. Additionally, over 400 veteran households are provided rapid re-housing and homeless prevention services annually.

We serve approximately 350 single veterans during the holiday months, most of whom do not have family support and would not have someone to celebrate the holiday with. We have another 50 veteran families who don’t have the resources to provide their children with gifts this holiday season.

In order to make this holiday one to remember, we are collecting up to 400 new unwrapped gifts for our veterans and their families.
