How NVFS’ Interconnected Resources Boost Its Immigration Legal Services’ Success
NVFS’ legal team prides itself on being part of NVFS’ wraparound service model. Legal clients are connected with a case manager, mental health services and interpreter. Today, Judith – who fled the Democratic Republic of the Congo out of fear for her safety – attests to how NVFS helped her journey from profound fear and uncertainty to personal and career success.

Back-to-School Drive: Empower Local Students!
We know school just let out for summer, but that doesn’t stop us from gearing up for the 2017-18 school year! Our Back-to-School drive is now accepting donations and supplies that will ensure local children in need can start off the school year successfully.
For every $1 donated by July 27, we will be able to purchase $2 worth of supplies.

“Camp Discovery” Impacts Children of SERVE and Hilda Barg Shelters
Going to summer camp is a rite of passage for most children, but not every child gets this opportunity. This is particularly so for homeless kids, so with support from volunteers, we brought Camp Discovery to them at both the Hilda Barg and SERVE shelters!
As the kids enjoy summer camp, the campers’ parents can more efficiently search for jobs, arrange interviews, schedule appointments, and submit applications to move their family out of homelessness and into stable housing.
Summer Camp Items: Craft supplies, musical instruments, LEGOs, chalk, bubbles, puppets and more! If it’s educational and fun, we’d love to have it for our campers, all of whom are guests at our shelters.

“Because of NVFS, I was able to improve my grades at school, and avoid drugs and negative friends. With the help of NVFS, I now have my driver’s license and am looking forward to graduating from high school next month, so I can study to be a math teacher.”
