CALV supports Las Vegas homeless youths

Commercial Alliance Las Vegas and Las Vegas Realtors are partnering with other local real estate organizations to support Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth by collecting donations and volunteering to renovate residences that house previously homeless teens.

With CALV and LVR, local chapters of real estate organizations supporting the cause include the Nevada Appraisal Institute; BOMA (Building Owners and Managers Association); Southern Nevada CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member); CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women); IREM (Institute of Real Estate Management); NAIOP Southern Nevada; Nevada State Apartment Association (NVSAA); and SIOR (Society of Industrial and Office Realtors).

“Homelessness is a growing concern here in Southern Nevada,” said CALV President Natalie Allred, whose professional designations include being a Certified Property Manager (CPM) and Accredited Residential Manager (ARM). “Sadly, young people are often the most affected, with many struggling to find a safe place to call home.”

CALV and its partners are teaming up with NPHY to address this growing need. On April 22, volunteers plan to renovate several of NPHY’s local housing units that provide temporary homes for previously homeless youth.

“This is an important step toward helping these young people gain stability and start a new chapter,” Allred added.

Through March 31, CALV is encouraging and collecting donated items from NPHY’s Amazon Wish List to help with the beautification and renovation project. To volunteer on April 22, call CALV at 702-784-5050.
