Reno Shelter from the Storm Annual Breakfast

A thriving tradition, VOA’s Shelter from the Storm fundraising breakfast is known in Reno as the must attend event of the year! Now in its 8th year, hundreds of supporters and new friends gather for an hour of inspiration, hearing firsthand from people whose lives have been changed thanks to Volunteers of America’s work here in Northern Nevada.

Captivated and moved by the personal testimonials, a significant portion of all gifts we receive each year are thanks to this inspiring program. Providing shelter is not the answer alone to change the lives of our clients in Northern Nevada, this year, our goal is to raise an additional $100,000. These additional 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.

Hope Lives Here

Watch as VOA Regional Director Pat Cashell recounts a story of helping a homeless mother and daughter who were outside late at night during a winter storm.

While the backgrounds and circumstances of the individuals we serve vary, what stories like this share are how the course of peoples lives are changed for the better because of the intervention of the programs, a caring staff, and the supporters of Volunteers of America.

Together we can change lives by helping individuals build a strong foundation that will last a lifetime.
