The Shannon West Homeless Youth Center is a new 37,000 SF 86-bed homeless shelter for youth ages 16-24. The building will contain six single-room occupancy (SRO) units and forty dormitory-style rooms with two beds each, for a total of eighty dormitory beds. The Project will be owned and operated by HELP of Southern Nevada, a private 501(c)(3) comprehensive social service providerthat has been operating in Nevada since 1970. HELP has grownfrom an organization serving 300 people annually to servingover 100,000 and it is now the premier community resource inSouthern Nevada. They currently operate a 60-bed homeless youth shelter out of an under-sized and inefficient facility indowntown Las Vegas. With this Shannon West project, HELP can relocate from their existing site and expand their program, allowing them to serve an additional 480 youth annually.
