Greater Nevada Mortgage Expands Its Charitable Program, Keys to Greater, for Homeless Youth Into Southern Nevada

Greater Nevada Mortgage is expanding our Keys to Greater program to southern Nevada to support more at-risk and homeless youth across the state. In a new collaboration with Las Vegas-based Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY), the Keys to Greater program will provide a $2,500 donation, continuing the more than $190,000 in funding provided to community partners that address the needs of youth experiencing homelessness in Nevada.

“The Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth is leading the effort to eradicate youth homelessness in Nevada, a state disproportionately affected by this issue,” said James Anderson, President at GNM. “We are honored to add NPHY to our Keys to Greater Program, expanding it into southern Nevada and we look forward to contributing to such a great cause and supporting a key player in this effort.”

According to the National Center for Homeless Education, nearly 16,500 students in Nevada experienced homelessness during the 2021-2022 school year, accounting for 3.4% of all enrolled students. The state has consistently ranked among the top in the U.S. for high numbers of youths experiencing homelessness.

The Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth addresses the urgent needs of southern Nevada youth experiencing homelessness through emergency intervention and assistance. The organization builds pathways to independence by providing housing solutions, education, employment assistance and more to help young individuals graduate from school, find their passions and realize brighter futures.

“We are so grateful to have been chosen to be a partner in Greater Nevada Mortgage’s Keys to Greater initiatives,” said Arash Ghafoori, CEO of NPHY. “These types of campaigns not only help create flexible funding streams for our most needed supplies, but they help raise awareness about the NPHY and the issue of youth homelessness, which ultimately leads to more businesses and community members getting involved. That kind of partnership is invaluable and we are truly thrilled to be a part of this!”

Through the Keys to Greater program, GNM contributes a portion of the revenue from every new mortgage or refinanced mortgage to community partners including the Eddy House in Reno, Nevada and the Northern Nevada Dream Center in Carson City, Nevada. In 2023, the Eddy House supported 511 people through its services and the Northern Nevada Dream Center supported 7,001 people through its services. In expanding support to NPHY in Las Vegas, the Keys to Greater program funds community partners working to end youth homelessness statewide.
