Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is pleased to announce that Shareholder Angela Otto was recently honored by HELP of Southern Nevada for her pro bono work on the Shannon West Homeless Youth Center that opened in Las Vegas this past July.
For the past 17 years, the nonprofit organization has held its Tea, Trends and Tranquility benefit where it honors individuals and businesses in Las Vegas for their excellence in the community, civic efforts and professional leadership. Angela led a team of 15 attorneys from Brownstein to develop the Shannon West Homeless Youth Center. This team worked more than 400 hours over the course of almost three years with the acquisition, construction and financing of the center.
“Through your pro bono work with Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, you have made the Las Vegas community a better place to live, work and raise families,” said Fuilala Riley, president and CEO of HELP of Southern Nevada. “Your tireless work on land acquisition and the agreement between Nevada HAND and HELP of Southern Nevada contributed in a major way to the success of this project.”
HELP of Southern Nevada operates nine departments, consists of 97 employees and serves more than 103,000 unduplicated clients each year. The services HELP provides assist low-income families, homeless teens and adults, among other individuals, to become self-sufficient through direct services, trainings and referrals.
“I’m honored to be a part of this great project,” Angela said. “I’m so excited to see the Shannon West Homeless Youth Center open and serving our community.”
