Women and Children’s Village Awarded Grant from MGM Foundation

By Andrew Moran, Development Director

In May, the WestCare Nevada Women and Children’s Campus was gifted an amazing donation from the MGM Resorts Foundation. WestCare Nevada was given a one-time grant of $72,900 to furnish 11 apartments at the planned transitional living community, The Village at the WestCare Nevada Women and Children’s Campus.

Per their website, “The MGM Resorts Foundation was established in 2002 as an engagement opportunity for employees to contribute to important charitable causes. Since inception, the Foundation has raised over $100 million and supported more than 1,500 charitable organizations in U.S. communities and locations where MGM conducts business. In 2021, the MGM Resorts Foundation distributed more than $3 million to local organizations.”

During their stay at The Village, our women served will live on-site as they work with our specialized and licensed staff to gain the skills, employment, confidence, and means to live on their own. The total length of stay can range from 90 days to a maximum of 18 months. With nearly half of the total project cost already raised for the construction of the 84 units, this gift brings us closer to beginning the first phase of construction. This first phase will include 22 one-bedroom apartments, 4 two-bedroom apartments, and two multi-purpose rooms. We hope to break ground on this project by this fall!

Our entire team would like to thank the MGM Resorts Foundation for their act of kindness in furnishing these much-needed apartments for our families to continue to heal. It will give our mothers and children served a sense of belonging and a comfortable, safe place to call home!
