On June 9, Windermere Real Estate presented Henderson-based HopeLink with a $25,000 grant to help the agency fulfill its mission to help the homeless. The nonprofit organization beat out two dozen other groups that applied for the grant.
“We are so thankful to be receiving these funds,” HopeLink executive director Daniele Dreitzer says. “We are seeing more and more families with children who just can’t keep their homes with the current economic situation.”
HopeLink provides emergency shelter to those in crisis, finds permanent housing for the homeless and operates a food pantry, among other services.
The donation was made through the Windermere Foundation, a fund supported by agents at the company’s Green Valley, Summerlin and Anthem Hills locations by donating proceeds from their sales commissions. Nationally, the Windermere Foundation gives more than $2 million annually to nonprofit agencies working to combat homelessness and poverty.
