Entry Title Date
Child Nutrition April 27, 2016

Harry Reid, D-NV

Father Adam initially faced challenges in acquiring funding for the project. However, with the help of Nevadan community leaders, including Claudine and Shelby Williams, Forrest Duke, and the Sisters of Charity, the project raised $30,000, and the facility was built. Eddie, a resident of Elko, NV, became the first child to attend St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. Since then, the organization has been a sanctuary for numerous abused and neglected children and is a recognized landmark in southern Nevada."
