Celebrating Our Silver Anniversary In 2014

The Shade Tree opened its doors in 1989 with a mission to serve our community and we are so pleased to be celebrating 25 years of service in Las Vegas. In honor of this huge milestone, we've launched a new donor program called Protectors Of Hope. Please visit our $25 for 25 Pledge page for complete details.

"Horses 4 Heroes" Teams Up To Help Our Survivors Of Abuse

Every week, Horses 4 Heroes opens their facility to our families with the goal of using animal therapy to help our women and children heal from the pain suffered through abuse and violence. Their partnership is invaluable as it offers another avenue to help rebuild their lives after crisis.

From current tenants of The Shade Tree:

"This program was my salvation. I was going through a lot. The horse's gave me a peace of mind...I don't have a daughter with me right now and Horses 4 Heroes lifted my spirits."

"Horses 4 Heroes is one of the most gratifying experiences I have had in the past months. It helps me deal with stress and relaxes me. I love working with the horses. Thank you." [LEARN MORE]

Chefs for Kids

For 15 years, Chefs for Kids has partnered with The Shade Tree, filling the tummies and warming the spirits of the women and children who call Shade Tree home. On Christmas Eve morning, 20-30 chefs arrive at the shelter before the sun even rises to serve a full breakfast spread. Chefs from all across the valley serve up scrambled eggs, bacon, pancakes, sausages and more. And they do not stop with just a meal…they always bring along Santa Claus! As the children gather around the table to enjoy their breakfast, Santa makes his way around the room taking down last minute requests. The chefs also take time to sit with the women and children to hear their stories and offer words of encouragement. Seeing the Dayroom filled with all the white chef coats is warming and appreciated......[read more]
