St. Jude’s Ranch For Children Benefitting Foster Kids With ‘UnGala’
St. Jude’s Ranch is hosting an extravaganza in Las Vegas. To help their mission of supporting Nevada’s local children and young adults in need.
St. Jude’s Ranch helps transform the lives of abused and at-risk children in Nevada. They do this by giving them a safe place to make new choices, leading to new paths and new hope for a better life. The nonprofit organization has programs to serve foster and homeless children in our community. They also help survivors of sex trafficking in Las Vegas with their Healing Center.
The organization is hosting their “Un-Gala” on Tuesday, October 19, 2023. It promises to redefine the gala experience for its guests. The event will be from 6 – 9 p.m. at the “Assembly” at the UnCommons community. Located at 6880 Helen Toland Street in Southwest Las Vegas. The event will include fun-filled activities, unlimited small bites and drinks from various culinary and beverage stations. There will also be photo opportunities, entertainment and more.
Proceeds from “Un-Gala” will benefit the various programs at St. Jude’s Ranch for Children in Southern Nevada.
Like the Therapeutic Residential Program for foster kids ages 0-18. This program addresses the social, emotional and behavioral issues often present in children who have been abused, neglected, abandoned or homeless. The Transitional Living Program focuses specifically on older children who are prepared to enter the world as adults. These 15-18 year olds receive life skills training to prepare them for integration into society.
The Pregnant and Parenting Teen Program helps an extremely underserved demographic in Nevada. Which has one of the highest rates of teen pregnancy in the country. Older clients get help at St. Jude’s through the Transitional Housing Program. Which helps 18-24 year olds transition from homelessness to housing. And teaches them to maintain their new situation by helping them become stable, self-sustaining individuals.
