The NV Energy Foundation has long supported Nevada nonprofits providing services to address food insecurity, workforce development, safe housing, emotional and social support for youth, and other areas of supportive services for Nevada residents. When our communities were hit the hardest during the global pandemic, NV Energy stepped up to award grants to local nonprofits aiding in relief efforts.
Foundation for Recovery received a $10,000 grant to support wrap-around services provided to our program participants experiencing problematic substance use, mental illness, and homelessness. The grant helped to fund key services such as personal hygiene kits, overdose prevention kit supplies, essential documents like state IDs and birth certificates, and food for our food insecure peers.
The support from NV Energy didn’t end with the grant. Employees joined Foundation for Recovery staff and volunteers to pack life-saving overdose prevention and hygiene kits which were later distributed to the community.
