Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth graduates from Sands Cares Accelerator

Sands Cares Accelerator, a non-profit membership division of Las Vegas Sands, has congratulated Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY) on becoming its second ‘graduate.’

The fast-track programme, which was designed to support fledging organisations on the ‘tipping point’ of positively impacting communities, offers extended funding, strategic guidance and expert advice over a three-year period. 

Ron Reese, Sands SVP Global Comms and Corporate Affairs, commented: “NPHY's journey through the Sands Cares Accelerator is a good example of how we've evolved the program over its brief five-year history, as we gained experience, better understood our members' needs and found new ways to help them succeed. 

“During its membership, we added a more structured approach for project management and goal-setting, which helped the organisation work through the process for developing a strategic plan. Establishing a blueprint for the future is the type of lasting impact we aim to help non-profits make.” 

Since the programme’s inception in 2017, five organisations have benefitted from the support on offer; a fundraising event, the Sands Cares Inspire Charity Concert, was held with all proceeds directed to the organisations themselves.  

Marty Hennessy Inspiring Children Foundation, the programme’s first inductee, graduated in 2020. 

Arash Ghafoori, CEO, NPHY, said: “The Sands Cares Accelerator helped us create space beyond our day-to-day services and programming to look at strategic opportunities, for how we can build lasting solutions to address youth homelessness in Southern Nevada. 

“With the consulting support, guidance and funding resources provided through the Sands Cares Accelerator, we were able to complete our goal of developing a comprehensive and long-term strategic plan to chart our course for the future. Our time in the program provided an incredible growth opportunity for NPHY.”
