ABOUT PROJECT 150:

Project 150 is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization that was organized in December 2011 when the founders of the organization heard about 150 homeless high school students at Rancho High School, who were in need of support over the Christmas Break.  The effort has expanded to helping over 2,500 students in 45 different high schools across the valley. There are over 11,200 homeless students in the Las Vegas valley, over 2,500 of those are in high school. High School is Tough Enough without having to worry about where you are going to sleep at night. Project 150 was created out of our community’s desire to help these kids. Our mission is to offer support and services to these homeless high school students, so they have what they need to continue school and be successful in life.
