Who they are
What they do
NPHY is the most comprehensive service provider for the thousands of young people experiencing homelessness in our community, providing access to life-changing services for homeless youth 24 hours a day at virtually every street corner in Southern Nevada. NPHY's wraparound programs stabilize young people's lives, meeting their immediate needs and providing a safe, supportive environment and a path to self-sufficiency. NPHY's individualized, holistic services empower young people to not only achieve long-term independence, but to craft the futures they want for themselves.
Strengthening and complementing our high-quality direct services for homeless youth, NPHY is dedicated to advocating for the Vegas Valley's homeless youth population and serves as a leader in systems-level efforts to eliminate homelessness among Nevada's youth.
Are you a young person, ages 12 - 20, with nowhere to sleep tonight? Are you running away or afraid you're going to get kicked out? Are you in an unstable housing situation or couchsurfing with friends? Are you in need of a place to stay, food, clothing, hygiene supplies, or someone to talk to? Do you feel unsafe?
NPHY is here to help! Call our crisis hotline 24-hours-a-day at 1-866-U-ARE-SAFE (1-866-827-3723) to get connected to immediate help.
If you need a safe place to go right now, you can also walk into any Terrible Herbst convenience store, City of Las Vegas Fire Station, Las Vegas-Clark County Library, Henderson Library, or get onto any Regional Transportation Commission bus and ask for a safe place and you will receive immediate help.
If it's between 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Friday, you can also walk in to our Drop-In Center, located at 4981 Shirley Street, Las Vegas, NV 89119 (near the intersection of Tropicana Ave. and Maryland Parkway, across Tropicana from the Thomas & Mack Center) to speak to a case manager and get access to food, clothing, hygiene supplies, and bus passes, assistance with identification documents, help with school and work, and connections to a safe place to stay.
