Speaker to discuss ‘Energy Saving Programs for Businesses’
HENDERSON, Nev. – The Henderson Chamber of Commerce will host its monthly network breakfast from 7 to 9 a.m. Tuesday, July 16, in the Cancun Room at Fiesta Henderson, 777 W. Lake Mead Parkway.
Two experienced energy professionals, Adam Grant, NV Energy project manager, and Jon Trabert, senior operations manager for the NV Energy Sure Bet Commercial Energy Efficiency Incentive program in Nevada, will serve as speakers at the breakfast. They will discuss “Energy Saving Programs for Businesses.”
The Henderson Chamber of Commerce Foundation recently graduated the Leadership Henderson class of 2019, which featured 31 local community and business leaders. During the program, which began last fall, students received more than 30 hours of professional leadership development training and met with Southern Nevada’s decision-makers to learn about Henderson’s key topics and infrastructure.
Gabriel Johnson had nowhere else to turn when she first stepped through the doors of Living Grace Homes.
She and her 2-year-old son were homeless. And because she was just aging out of foster care, she was at risk of losing him.
“I’d had a baby at 13, and I was so used to running,” she said. “It was one thing after another. But now, it’s stable.”
The Henderson nonprofit, a safe haven for homeless, pregnant young women and moms, helped her get her son back, land a job and get on track to start school soon, she said.
And now, the home she and three other women share has been completely upgraded, thanks to a $87,400 donation, raised by HomeAid Southern Nevada. On Friday, they celebrated the renovation with a dedication.
