Nevada has one of the highest rates of youth experiencing homelessness in the nation. There are an estimated 1,300 young people in Nevada facing homelessness at any given moment. This population makes up 20% of the state's homeless count.
That's why we and our wholly owned subsidiary, Greater Nevada Mortgage, have partnered with Eddy House in Reno to join them in their fight to end youth homelessness in Nevada. Together, we launched the Keys to Greater program, with $100 of the revenue from every mortgage or refinance through Greater Nevada Mortgage being donated to Eddy House.
Since the launch of the program in January, 2021, over $64,000 has been donated through May. And we won't stop there.
When Eddy House reached out looking for ways to educate their clients on healthy eating habits, we provided two brand-new grills for the House. But we knew this new equipment wasn't enough. We also arranged for Reno chef Mark Estee to attend a BBQ and teach the youth of Eddy House how to use the grills, letting them eat what they prepared for themselves.
Watch the video below for a recap of the day's events.
