Hope for Prisoners will be conducting a 14-hour Reentry Mentor Certification Training course to qualify new mentors. The training will provide necessary tools to be effective throughout the duration of the mentoring process. MENTORING IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS!

“The most important part of programs geared toward helping people change the course of their lives is mentoring. People cannot be expected to be successful doing things they've never done before without someone to walk through those times with them. Jon Ponder and the team at HOPE for Prisoners is helping people achieve sustainable life change by providing skilled, trained, and compassionate mentors to accompany them on the journey”
- Tim Burch, Director, Clark County Department of Social Service

Join us at the Old Las Vegas Fort, located at 500 E. Washington Ave, in Las Vegas. Shirley Nelson will be visiting us from Tuba City, Arizona, the heart of the Dine (Navajo) Nation. Shirley grew up the child of a single mother who supported her young family with simple bead work earrings and other jewelry. Thus, Shirley learned her craft at a very young age, and is now a gifted artist who is passing the tradition of fine bead work, and the craft of Heishi and Cedar Berry necklaces and bracelets, down to her own grandchildren. She will appear with her daughter-in-law, Charmayne Nelson, who specializes in beaded bracelets. Both ladies will demonstrate how they make the beaded jewelry and Shirley will demonstrate how dream catchers are made with a small loom and hide.

Choose Purity

Event Date: 
05/03/2014 - 10:30am

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has joined forces with the Nevada Black Police Association and Victory Outreach Summerlin to present Choose Purity. The event arose out of the middle school girl who was severely beaten and left in a coma by other female students. As girls develop and mature they fall into four obvious traps; drugs, sex, gangs and prostitution. We will have detectives from each of these details present to educate our girls on what happens when they become involved in these situations. We will also be providing counseling, education and resources. For more information contact Regina Coward at 702-884-7282 or email at R4006C@LVMPD.COM

United Way of Southern Nevada is encouraging summer reading by hosting a “Flip Through Summer” Book Drive on May 16 through May 30. When school is out children can lose as much as three months of reading comprehension. Community members who participate in the “Flip Through Summer” Book Drive can help change that story.

Community members can drop off their new and gently used books (books geared towards birth through age 12 preferred) during the week of May 16 through 30 to United Way of Southern Nevada.

United Way also invites local organizations to hold their own “Flip Through Summer” Book Drives anytime during the month of May to contribute to this effort encouraging summer reading.
