ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Henderson, Nevada-based nonprofit organization HopeLink which is committed to helping disadvantaged people throughout the state. Accordingly, the organization deals with child welfare concern and is addressing homelessness prevention through providing a one-time rent assistance to people facing a life-changing event. Furthermore, HopeLink executive director Daniele Dreitzer said that the organization was formed as a volunteer-driven effort when the city of Henderson failed to obtain a National League of Cities Award.
