Reno Shelter from the Storm Table Captain Information & Inspiration

Thank you VOA Table Captains!

You will be joined by likeminded individuals who have accepted VOA’s invitation to serve as a volunteer Table Captain for our upcoming Shelter from the Storm fundraising breakfast, which takes place on Thursday, November 14th from 8:00 to 9:00 am at the Eldorado Resort Casino in the Convention Center.

I am happy to share with all of you a glimpse into this year’s breakfast theme “Hope Lives Here”. VOA Northern Nevada is so much more than a shelter for those who have fallen on difficult times. We will share the stories of individuals who lives have been changed because of the multitude of services we are able to offer because of people like you. Every day we see the benefits of stabilizing individuals and families by providing affordable housing to seniors and working individuals, and helping people sustain their independence through the ReStart housing programs.

With you alongside us, VOA-NCNN can continue to build a foundation of community support to sustain our programs and support the development of new programs to serve needs not yet met. Together we will continue pioneering community based, high quality, integrated models of care for thousands of our under-served neighbors right in Northern Nevada.

A Voice for Others

Nan had spent years trying to recover from a life of abuse – You will hear her story on how now “She is the best Grandmother she can be!”

Your loyal support is precious to VOA, and to me personally. We feel stronger knowing you are right there with us!

Below, you’ll find an abundance of resources. Scroll down to see all the good stuff available for you to share with your guests. I am here to help, so please feel free to reach out to me at any time should questions arise.
