Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth Honors Supporters

LAS VEGAS — Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY) held its annual awards luncheon in October at the Stirling Club.This year's honorees included:

Youth of the Year- Callyce Carroll

Donor of the Year- Bill Fry. Fry has the distinction of writing the largest private donation check in the history of NPHY. Due to his generous donation of $250,000 for the naming rights to one of the new buildings, the capital campaign is well on its way.

Board Member of the Year- Mike Mullin

Supporter of the Year- Nevada Power Company. Nevada Power Company has been a generous donor over the past year. NPHY received a capacity building grant that allowed it to have its first board retreat. Nevada Power sponsored Homeless Youth Day in Carson City during the 2007 legislative session and President Pat Shalmy spoke in front of the legislature about NPHY.

Volunteer of the Year- Susan Somers

Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth is the only youth service provider in Nevada with a continuum of care extending from street outreach and 24-hour crisis intervention services to a full-time drop-in center and an independent living program.

It's good to see people in the community supporting NPHY, which fills a critically underserved need in Southern Nevada. We hope others will support the organization and help its capital campaign reach its goals.
