This fall, Nevada State Bank’s volunteers will work with the women from The Shade Tree on classes covering topics such as budgeting, career options and renting an apartment.

Rebecca Reyes, program director for The Shade Tree shelter in Las Vegas, said many of the women they serve have a limited understanding of how to properly manage their money, and some have never held a job.

Two of the classes they are offering are "Things Don't Just Happen," a class on budgeting, planning ahead and staying in school, and how to rent an apartment.
