Youth and Community Advocate, Robert White, Looks to Make a Difference at the Shelter
LAS VEGAS, NV — The Shade Tree, a shelter for women, children, and their pets, welcomed Robert White, the new Director of Programs and Education to the organization on November 28th. White will oversee existing programs and implement new learning opportunities for the women and children of The Shade Tree while being a bridge to other community programs that work to fight homelessness, domestic violence, and economic hardships within the community. This includes coordinating the education outreach and expanding programs at the Stallman Touro Clinic at The Shade Tree, the Children’s Activity Center (CAC), and Noah’s Animal House (NAH).
“For the last 10 years I’ve been a public servant and a true steward of the community,” said White. “This opportunity with The Shade Tree is only going to further my commitment to the underserved.” White served as a CASA Volunteer with the Eighth Judicial District Court and Educational Surrogate with Legal Aid of Southern Nevada for the past 8 years as well as worked for Clark County in the Department of Family Services, Visionz Family & Youth Services of Nevada, and Head Start.
