LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Today, commercial contractor The PENTA Building Group unveiled the newly renovated women and children’s facility at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission.

PENTA led teams of volunteer construction companies, who donated nearly $800,000 in-kind for new rooms, windows, roof, bathrooms, doors, plumbing, and electrical work for the Mission’s shelter.

During the re-opening event, AGC Charities Inc., a national construction philanthropy that supported the project as part of its Operation Opening Doors program, announced a donation of $25,000 to help cover additional costs of the renovation. This contribution matches a prior amount that AGC Charities granted in August, raising its total donation to $50,000 for the project.

“The Las Vegas Rescue Mission is doing amazing work in order to help those in our community who are most vulnerable,” said Ken Alber, Principal at The PENTA Building Group. “It brings our company great pride and satisfaction to give this facility the facelift it needed so that its occupants have the best chance possible to improve their health and life despite whichever circumstance they may find themselves in.”

In addition to the official re-opening, construction officials led tours of the new facility and outlined how the renovations are part of a broader, long-term effort to fully renovate the Las Vegas Rescue Mission. With this aid, the organization will be able to continue its mission to serve those in need with food, shelter, daily needs, and addiction recovery.
