LAS VEGAS CASE STUDY - RESULTING IN 75% CRIME REDUCTION

The 10-step system used by Neighborhood Rescue of America was first validated in Las Vegas, Nevada, which was chosen due to having the worst conditions for children in the country.

The most dangerous community in the city, the Sierra Oeste neighborhood which had been unfixeble for last last 15 years was selected for the case study.  The project was a  a  private, non-governmental community development initiative project based on private donations and volunteerism. The result of the collaborative efforts by the local police department and non-profit organizations resulted in a turn-around of the low-income ethnic community of Sierra Oeste , which achieved a 75% reduction in violent crime. The 10 step system used contributed to a $10 million economic impact, including a +100% increase in property prices and $1 million worth of press for the participants. The goal for the community rehabilitation was to create a new environment for the children and the pets. The project is presented in detail in the multi-award winning documentary; Vegas Vikings - The 21 Challenge available on Yoube, as well as in the manual; Neighborhood Rescue 101- How to fix low-income Black and Hispanic communities. The 10-step system is universal and can be used to turn around any troubled community in the US. With NRA's volunteer based chapters in multiple states the goal is to help children and their pets, throughout America.
