Our mission here at Nourishing Hands Child Care is to teach kids practical ways to nourish, care and appreciate their environment in which they live in; including people, plants and animals while they are being nourished. We believe, when children are nourished, they learn. When children learn, they care. We have incorporated a Play and Learn curriculum which is a hands-on approach to learning and plenty of opportunities for free-choice and independent learning. Our teachers will lovingly guide your child through their earliest developmental milestones while singing, dancing, and playing. Our In-Home Child Care is open to children 2 years old to 12 years old.

EL SHADDAI REFUGE HOMES CDC, was founded On August 1, 2017 with our first independent living home in Las Vegas, NV. by Sanyika and Angela who are dedicated community partners in the faith. As a non-profit, Community Development Corporation. El Shaddai Homes, Inc. will service the immediate needs of the homeless men, women and children. Sanyika and Angela have worked together since 1997 serving and helping youth and families in Southern California through a variety of outreaches. They both have a heart of Gold when it comes to helping people. They both have open their homes to many people in need of a place to stay. Now they have joined in partnership towards the goal of helping assist in the prevention and intervention of ending homelessness in Nevada.
El Shaddai Refuge Homes (ESRH) will be re-opening our retail facility, GEMS 4 U family discount clothing, and creating a new project called Step Up Yo Game Youth Job Training Program to provide transitional age foster youth with opportunities for workforce development. We will be serving all youth 17 - 21 who are in the step-up program regardless of if they are receiving shelter within our homes. Staff have operated the retail facility before, therefore have the knowledge of all operational necessities and the foundation to initiate this program. This project fits into the larger organization’s long-term goals of providing integrative care and supportive services to our residents. This project is necessary in helping youth who are in our care, as they transition into the workforce and develop a sense of self-esteem from learning the necessary skill set for a retail workplace.
Our goal is to provide all services from education to employment to emotional health resources.
