Chapter president Kristen Beling said “we chose DFS because it speaks to the heart of what YMSL stands for… and we are happy to have the opportunity to make this ‘gift’ to enhance the parent-child experience within DFS.”

The project consisted of painting conference rooms, installing bookshelves with over 150 donated books, and providing artwork and toys to create a comfortable setting for DFS’s parent-child visitations. We also had help from a YMSL dad, Mr. Wagner, who taught the boys proper techniques for prepping, painting and clean-up for this large-scale project.

DFS Director Lisa Ruiz-Less said this donation "will provide comfort to these very special children of Clark County for years to come and we truly appreciate your kindness.”

Mom and SonOn November 3-5, the Las Vegas Chapter participated in theirfirst Ultimate Gift service weekend. The Chapter chose the Department of Family Services (DFS) to be the recipient of their inaugural Ultimate Gift. DFS is a leader and advocate in the treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect. Chapter president Kristen Beling said “we chose DFS because it speaks to the heart of what YMSL stands for… and we are happy to have the opportunity to make this ‘gift’ to enhance the parent-child experience within DFS.”

The project consisted of painting conference rooms, installing bookshelves with over 150 donated books, and providing artwork and toys to create a comfortable setting for DFS’s parent-child visitations. We also had help from a YMSL dad, Mr. Wagner, who taught the boys proper techniques for prepping, painting and clean-up for this large-scale project.

DFS Director Lisa Ruiz-Less said this donation "will provide comfort to these very special children of Clark County for years to come and we truly appreciate your kindness.”
