By strengthening family relationships, NVFS Youth Initiatives clients experience more stability at home, and are less inclined to act out or make poor choices. Outcomes include improved school performance and prevented or reduced gang involvement, as well as a decreased risk of human trafficking.
Enriching Our Community Through Long-Term Partnerships
As a part of team-building activities, employees of our committed partner, Micron Technology, Inc., regularly volunteer at NVFS’ SERVE campus, participate in NVFS school supply and food drives, and collect business clothes so that shelter guests have professional attire to wear to job interviews.

“I’ve sincerely enjoyed the time you’ve spent during the past couple of weeks. I know it’s not always easy or convenient to personally come to my home and work with me on various strategies to assist me in my time of need. Yet you gave so generously your time, knowledge, patience and expertise to assist and speak on my behalf at such a critical time in my life. Your dedication to devote so much time, and keep me informed of a plan of action, has truly helped ease a lot of my concerns as to how I was going to continue paying such high rent. For nearly two years, it had taken a toll on me – being so stressed and many sleepless nights. I am truly grateful for your support to overcome obstacles that I alone could not have done, to rebuild my dreams to find affordable housing and have stability in my life once again.”
