I would like to introduce you to Monica DuPea, the Founder and Director of the Nevada Youth Empowerment Project (NYEP) and our first acknowledged Local Legend of 2018!
The NYEP is a 100% community funded Reno non-profit that addresses the needs of homeless teen girls by providing a facilitated residential independent living program. Once stabilized, youth residents are provided supports and training to develop them to self sufficiency. The curriculum is based in structure, routine, consistency and accountability.
We encourage you to learn more about the NYEP by visiting their webpage and getting involved.
Sending a huge shout out to Monica for her selflessness as she continues to rebuild the lives that so desperately need it!
