Our Center is for Our Community,
and every dollar makes a difference!
Nevada’s annual Big Give event is today! Nevadans will come together for 24 hours of online giving. You will have the opportunity to give where you live on one central website. Come out to support OUR Center and programming with a secure, online donation, for as little as $10.
Your donations will not only help our efforts, but will give us the chance to win additional funding by either garnering the highest number of donations or the highest amount of donations.
We’ve had over 5,000 visitors to Our Center since opening in April 2016!
Help us reach our next landmark of 20 new or recurring donors, as we approach our one year anniversary!
What do your donations support?
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!

It’s time for the 2017 Homeless Youth Point In Time Count
January 26th Midnight to Midnight.
This is the 4th year Build Our Center has served as an event organizer with Nevada Youth Empowerment Project. NYEP has organized the count for 6 years.
The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. The Department of Housing and Urban Development mandates a survey of homeless people every year. This data is ultimately used to develop and fund housing and supportive programs for those in need.
