The Solace Tree receives support from Little Hope Foundation


The Solace Tree is pleased to announce Little Hope Foundation of New York has contributed $39,900, which will go toward launching Adam’s Place, a similar program in Las Vegas.

Kelly Thomas-Boyers, Co-Founder/Executive Director of Adam’s Place, has its 501 c (3) structure in place and is in the midst of board development and fundraising. As co-founder, the Solace Tree’s founder and executive director, Emilio Parga, is traveling to Las Vegas on a monthly basis to help with the development of the fledgling organization.

The Solace Tree has been providing support for grieving children, teens and families in Northern Nevada since 2003, helping them cope with the death of their loved ones. The expansion of the program to the southern part of the state will help thousands more people through what is often the most difficult time in their lives. “We are only able to expand this quickly because of the generosity and support we’ve received from so many individuals and organizations,” Parga says. “It’s really amazing how many people want to help with these programs.”
