In many ways, a business is a platform for change. Companies have the opportunity and potential to do so much more than produce revenue. We feel our fiduciary responsibility is to give back and contribute to our community in more ways than one.
HELP of Southern Nevada’s Shannon West Homeless Youth Center
HELP of Southern Nevada is committed to assisting individuals, families and youth throughout the Valley break down barriers and attain self-sufficiency though direct services, training, and referrals to community services.
Our Founder & CEO, Frederick Shelton, started out as a homeless teen. Due to a stranger's kindness, Mr. Shelton was given a home and an opportunity to have a life he never dreamed of.
After Mr. Shelton was saved from homelessness, he served in the US Navy. Understanding the importance of paying it forward, Frederick has continuously volunteered at his local military bases, teaching those who have just returned how to re-integrate in civilian life.
Nellis Air Force Base
Nellis Air Force Base is a United States Air Force installation in southern Nevada. Nellis hosts air combat exercises such as Exercise Red Flag and close air support exercises such as Green Flag-West flown in "Military Operations Area airspace", associated with the nearby Nevada Test and Training Range.
All Ships Rise with the Tide
At Shelton & Steele, we believe in the ideal of the Corporate Conscience. To that end, we give back to our community. In addition to feeding hundreds of homeless people out of the back of Mr. Shelton's SUV every month, we also host fundraisers and volunteer at numerous places including homeless shelters, soup kitchens, teen crisis centers, food banks, the Music Forward Foundation and both Creech and Nellis Air Force Bases.
If you would like Mr. Shelton or members of our firm to come to your (non-profit, non-political) organization, please contact us. We have a variety of programs that range from teaching interviewing skills to overcoming homelessness, to core success skills for teens.
Additionally, our policy for referrals is as follows:
If you send us an attorney whom we successfully place, we will make a check out to the homeless shelter of your choice. For partner referrals, it's $5,000 and for associates, it's $2,500. We have had attorneys with overwhelming student debt ask that the check be made out to them and we're also fine with that.
The conditions are simple:
We need to place that attorney with our client.
We must be paid our fee!
The guarantee period for a refund must have expired.
It's that simple.
