“I love this city, it’s been good to me. I’ve always wanted to help the people around me and now I have a chance to give back to the community.”
Glen Lerner Gives Back
Glen Lerner had a humble upbringing and understands the struggles that can deter people from their dreams. That is why he encourages the lawyers and support staff of his personal injury firm to pursue charitable activities and sponsorship opportunities within the communities where they live and work to help improve the lives of others. With the help of family and friends, great deeds have been achieved through the law firm’s charitable arm Glen Lerner Gives Back in Las Vegas, Pahrump, Phoenix, and Chicago. The law firm’s efforts through Glen Lerner Gives Back assist at-risk children, families and four-legged critters who face daily struggles during these hard economic times.
Charitable organizations they are involved with include:
- Speedway Children’s Charities
- Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada

Glen Lerner Pays it Forward
Glen Lerner feels blessed to have been presented with opportunities that have made him the success that he is today. He believes in paying forward these blessing through acts of gratitude by giving something back to help make a positive community and social changes. Glen Lerner hopes that other business and individuals who can will also get involved and show an interest in making a difference and offering positive contributions within their own communities. Together the power of many joining together can make a difference.
Sponsors of Family Promise of Las Vegas Volunteer Appreciation Party
The Glen Lerner Gives Back team recently sponsored a volunteer appreciation event for Family Promise of Las Vegas. The event took place at the Railroad Museum in Boulder City, Nevada.
Thanks to Glen Lerner Gives Back’s sponsorship, approximately 85 volunteers were able to enjoy access to the museum which was later followed by a one-hour train ride. As they soaked in the history of the 100-year old rail cars, they also enjoyed a nice meal and entertainment.
“Partnering up with Family Promise of Las Vegas for this appreciation event was an easy choice. That was primarily due to the vital role they play in helping families with children in Clark County achieve sustainable housing. Unlike homeless shelters in our community, Family Promise is focused on providing overnight shelter and meals to individuals. They are also among the few that provide sustainable housing, especially for families with children. Since Family Promise is the only local organization filling these vital needs for individuals and families with children, we wanted to support them,” said Guy Williams, community outreach manager at Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys.
Organization volunteers fill a variety of roles at each hosting site. These roles include cooking, serving meals, socializing with the guests, assisting parents with children and providing overnight stays. Volunteers also help with running the Day Center, fundraising activities and guest events.
“The volunteer program is the core of the Family Promise network. Therefore, we wanted to bless those who bless needy families in our community,” stated Glen Lerner.
Following the volunteer appreciation event, Program Services Director, Barbara Coggins stated, “We are thankful for Glen Lerner’s generosity in underwriting the evening. It was an awesome experience. It was the best appreciation event for our wonderful volunteers, and our volunteers are the backbone of Family Promise Las Vegas.”
About Family Promise

About the Hoving Home
Since June 1967, the Hoving Home has been a center for hope for hundreds of women who reclaimed their lives after drug and alcohol abuse.
The Hoving Home is a residential spiritually-based home that is a non-profit organization that serves women ages 18 and over who have been involved in drug addiction, alcoholism, prostitution and other life-controlling problems. The 6- or 12-month programs help them to rebuild their lives in an atmosphere of warmth, trust, support and love.
The Hoving Home has four homes for women located in CA, NY, NJ and Las Vegas Nevada. Since opening in 1967 the Hoving Home has impacted the lives of 23,216 women.
The women live there for a year, paying a $500 entry fee and $500 a month. It costs about $2,000 a month per woman to run the home. The program, which boasts an 86 percent success rate, receives no government assistance.
The program includes daily devotions, reading the Bible in its entirety, and each woman facing her addiction by understanding what led her down that path, whether it was grief, rejection, abandonment, molestation or some other factor.
If you are interested in volunteering with the Hoving Home, find more information on their website or if you are interested in the other events that Glen Lerner and his foundation, Glen Lerner Gives Back, will be participating in, visit the Gives Back section on our website today.

Impact’s 2018 Back to School
Let me begin with the words, “thank you” as a way to express my heart felt gratitude for your assistance in underwriting this year’s Back to School Block Party. It’s but a few days after the event, and the process of putting everything away will take a while, but in my mind is the huge crowd that was here, and how much they appreciated everything. Allow me to give you a brief review:
*We started setup promptly at 11, and already the crowd had started forming. We began immediately to set up canopies to provide relief from the sun, and took out tables and chairs to make the waiting more comfortable.
*We began at 1, with all the canopies in place, snow cone, popcorn, and cotton candy machines al ready running. Hot dogs were being served, games now being played, and backpacks being disbursed. Each child would pick a backpack color containing teacher requested supplies (grade appropriate), receiving also ear buds, a dental hygiene kit, a New Testament, a box of Girl Scout cookies, coupons for food/appetizers from Texas Corral and/or Chick-Fil-A, and pencils, paper, ink pens, etc. After receiving the back pack, then it was on to the socks/underwear distribution points. The lines were steady for well over 2 hours.
*Throughout the afternoon, we hosted a magic show and a “Carol’s Cuisine Fruit of the Spirit pie baking class,” along with haircuts, nail polishing, games, jump houses, volleyball, ice cream from Culvers, peanuts from Texas Corral, and just about everything to entertain a child, while parents and grandparents looked through the 25+ tables full of good used clothing.
About 750 backpacks were distributed to the children/youth of Merrillville/Gary/Hobart/Lake Station/Calumet Township. We have tracking on all the students and will use that information to see how else we can serve the many families in our area.
Thank you! You helped make all this (and so much more) possible on August 11. Thank you for your generosity, your love and concern for the children/youth of this area, and the encouragement given to not only students, but parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles as they direct their children to return well prepared to the classrooms to achieve, grow and become tomorrows adults. Thank you.
Bob Szoke, Pastor
