JB Barnhart represented Sands Cares at the recent U.S. Vets - Las Vegas Recognition Awards where we were honored as Program Partner of the Year for our dedication to veteran’s assistance. Over the last two years, we have donated over $50,000 to U.S. Vets - Las Vegas through the Sands Give-Back Bank, as well as volunteered in the remodel of their facilities. Barnhart, also a veteran, sits on the advisory board of the non-profit.
U.S. Vets Las Vegas opened in 2001 and operates two residential facilities and a community support office. The Las Vegas location operates over 330 beds of transitional and permanent housing. Employment services are provided through a workforce program that helps over 110 veterans return to employment each year. Additionally, over 400 veteran households are provided rapid re-housing and homeless prevention services annually.
