The Shade Tree’s Gift of Holiday Hope

Date: November 17 – December 19
Location: All 12 local Las Vegas and Henderson Message Envy Spa clinics, Lexus of Las Vegas, and Lexus of Henderson.


Holidays are difficult for families struggling with violence and abuse, especially for those families who have had to leave their homes to escape the violence. In many cases, Shade Tree residents do not have the money to purchase gifts –even if they do, it is not always safe for them to go to the store. 


This holiday season, The Shade Tree is teaming up with Massage Envy Spa, Lexus of Las Vegas, and Lexus of Henderson for the first annual Gift of Holiday Hope, providing holiday gifts and cheer for families residing at the shelter.


Each Massage Envy clinic and Lexus dealership will serve as a donation drop-off point for new, unwrapped toys and gifts. Gifts will be accepted at all locations until Friday, December 19th, and through December 24th at The Shade Tree campus, 1 West Owens, North Las Vegas, Nevada 89030.

Family & Child Treatment of Southern NV

It is a fact that one in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior used to establish power and control over another person through fear and intimidation, often including the threat or use of violence. At The Shade Tree, over 26% of the cases we see are the result of domestic violence. When these women arrive at the shelter, many times they are insecure, fearful, angry, and desperate. They have lost hope and purpose in life. That hope though can be restored through a partnership The Shade Tree has with FACT (Families and Children Treatment) of Southern Nevada. [read more]


To provide safe shelter to homeless and abused women and children in crisis and to offer life-changing services promoting stability, dignity, and self-reliance.
