Victory Outreach Summerlin, a faith-based organization, has been in the Las Vegas Valley for over 10 years. In this time, they have made a positive impact in the community through various outreach events which target inner city youth, families, drug addicts, and prostitutes. They have played a vital role in mending families and restoring homes through various community outreach events where we have been able to touch the lives of people all over the valley.
A priority need for our community outreach events, which they have periodically throughout the year, is funding and donations in order to continue to make the events successful. In the past they have partnered with Clark County Department of Family Services Parenting Project, Child Haven, and Metro Police Department as well as several other community partners. This partnership has enabled them to put on several successful events and they are looking to expand partnerships to grow these events to reach even more of the community.
There are over five million children in the United States that have or had a parent in the prison system. The children that our organizations serve include children that come from a background in which their parents have had previous criminal, drug abuse past, etc., in which they were restored. Our programs help children recognize these affects to family and society, and not go down the same path as their parents.
