NPHY11Expect More: Our commitment to the community. As Las Vegas continues to grow so do the needs of the community. Hirschi Masonry and our team members bring our philosophy to life for the community we call home.

When the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY) needed to expand its Drop-In Center, the Hirschi Masonry team was excited to step up and lend a hand. As part of Home Aid Southern Nevada’s construction work donation to the project, Hirschi Masonry helped spruce up the expansion with stone veneer.

The expanded Drop-In Center is up and running and helping the community.

The 2,600-square-foot space allows the nonprofit to help the growing number of homeless teens with more capacity and ways to meet their basic survival needs while fostering self-sufficiency. More than 9,000 homeless youths were enrolled in the Clark County School District during the 2013-14 school year, according to the nonprofit.

The expansion, which doubles the size of the Drop-In Center, includes a new kitchen designed to serve teens’ daily nutritional needs and accommodate group sessions on how to prepare and cook food.

The expansion also offers a new computer lab, staff office space, a basketball court, a gym, art and music rooms and additional private areas for client intake and tutoring.

A $350,000 grant from Nevada Women’s Philanthropy helped fund the expansion. In addition, HomeAid Southern Nevada provided an in-kind donation of $175,000 in construction work.

NPHY has scheduled a block party to celebrate the expansion January 31 from 11 am to 3 pm.

Hirschi Masonry President Chad Hirschi is a member of the Board of Directors of HomeAid Southern Nevada, which aids homeless men, women and children in Southern Nevada through housing and community outreach. The NPHY Drop-In Center expansion is the latest expression of that commitment.

Hirschi Masonry and our team members live the Expect More philosophy. And we don’t shut it off when we go home at the end of the day. Helping the community that has helped us become successful is another area where we bring this philosophy to life.
