Las Vegas Family Housing Villages/Veterans Village Las Vegas and The Shade Tree Shelter announce Partnership to Create Transitional Housing for Homeless Women and Children

WHAT: 
Las Vegas Family Housing Villages, a nonprofit housing corporation recently established by Dr. Arnold Stalk, PhD., to develop affordable housing for families with children in Southern Nevada, announces a partnership with The Shade Tree Shelter for Homeless Women and Children. The partnership provides a ten-unit apartment complex for The Shade Tree to restart its Transitional Living Program at the “five corners” – the intersections of Eastern, Fremont, Boulder Highway and E. Charleston– and where the RTC Boulder Express runs to Downtown Henderson, allowing for easy public transportation access to downtown, Henderson and other employment and service areas.

The Shade Tree Transitional Living Program will start small and grow over time as more units are made available through Las Vegas Family Housing Villages. The initial ten units will be fully furnished with stocked kitchens and include a courtyard with a play area for children.

Residents will have full access to the food pantry and crisis building located at Veterans Village #2 next door.
