Street Teens
Helping homeless youth get off the streets
Organization History: Street Teens, a 501(c)(3) corporation, founded by Rosario and David Mereaux, was established as a volunteer organization to serve Las Vegas' homeless and at-risk teens. Originally offering resources through street outreach, the organization has now grown to provide a safe haven seven days per week. The Sanctuary, our drop-in center opened on October 1, 2001, serving our homeless youth from 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. daily. Mission Statement: Street Teens is a volunteer based, non-profit organization dedicated to assisting homeless, abandoned, and at risk youth, ages 12-21, in the Las Vegas Valley. Our primary goal is to meet the survival needs of our youth by providing basic necessities in a safe, compassionate environment. We are able to provide access to educational, health care, and employment resource services through our drop-in center and by actively collaborating with community partners. Street Teens does not discriminate on the basis of gender, religious affiliation, national origin, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Vision Statement: Street Teens will provide the facilities and resources to assist homeless and at-risk teens of Las Vegas with the transition to self-sufficiency through job training, education, and provision of life essentials, in collaboration with community partners. Street Teens envisions a day when its homeless teens can participate in society safely and productively. Demographic Description: Street Teens serves homeless and at risk youth in Clark County, Nevada, which includes the cities Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City and North Las Vegas. Our clients are both male and female between the ages of 12 and 21 years. On average, we provide services to 20- 25 teens per day.
