Helping America's most vulnerable.

Shelter from the Storm Annual Breakfast, Reno

Thank you for a wonderful 2017 RENO Shelter from the Storm Breakfast

Our annual fundraising breakfast event is on November 9th, 2017. Guests who join us hear from our individuals, children and families whose lives have been changed with help from Volunteers of America and supporters like you. Each of you is critical to our continued success. Providing food and shelter is not the answer alone to change lives of our clients in Northern Nevada, this year, our goal is to raise $350,000 in addition to what we receive from government grants. These funds help to expand and enhance programming to build that strong foundation and allow us to operate our programs and fully care for our clients and the well-being of our community.

Together we can change lives by building a strong foundation that will last a lifetime.

Join us in changing the lives of the most vulnerable. Give a gift today!

While the backgrounds vary, what the former and current clients who took the stage at Shelter from the Storm shared is how the course of their stories changed for the better because of the intervention of the programs, the staff, and the supporters of Volunteers of America.
BELOW are their stories as they shared them as a voice for others...

A Voice for Others - Ahnica Dolgin

Annika is now a family in her own home with her son and just bought her first car last week.

"After my son, Breccan, was born, I knew things had to change. I did not want to raise my son in a house of filth and drugs, constantly moving around. I had no place to call home and needed to make some really hard and painful choices. Do I give up everything that I know or do I live in chaos for the rest of my life? Then, I found Volunteers of America."

A Voice for Others - Chris Robinson

Chris is now working and has a small apartment with his son

"If it wasn't for Volunteers of America I wouldn't be the father I am today - healthy, working and providing a home for my son. I am probably not as far along as other guys my age but I am good and have a strong foundation now."
