Ongoing Needs at Marble Manor

Marble Manor is a local housing community with ongoing donation needs for their Family Self Sufficiency center and adult education programming.  Please feel free to share this update with anyone that may be interested in investing in-kind or cash donations for the ongoing projects.

The Community Center's transformation has continued to roll ahead.  On September 16th, the Career Training and Adult Learning Center had its Grand Opening.  The original plan to locate a Children's Reading Area in the Community Center was altered to meet the urgent need for adult education, job search assistance, computer skills training and GED support. The Computer Lab, sponsored by Bechtel SAIC, now provides five workstations and computer training in partnership with UNLV.

The Children's area will instead be located in Marble Manor's Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) center on J Street. Stacey Bostwick at (702) 922-7016 or sbostwick@haclv.org can provide additional details.

We have lists for the needs for both centers, and ongoing exterior improvements to the playground.  Please ask for a copy!

Exterior Improvements - Shade Structure, Exterior Benches, Decomposed Granite.
Adult Learning Center - Computer Lab Chairs, Training Tables & Chairs, Exterior Signage, Bulletin Boards.
Family Self Sufficiency Center - Children's Seating and Book Stands (9' x 12' area)

Cash donations can be received through The Housing Authority's 501(c)3 R.O.S.E. Foundation.
Call (702) 922-6060 for more information.
