Kylers Kicks New Building

My name is Kyler. I just turned 15 years old. I was stabbed in my chest in school over my shoes when I was 11 years old. I founded Kyler's Kicks to heal my PTSD through giving to others. We have given away over 37,000 pairs of shoes to those in need and the number grows daily. After my own family became homeless due to mental health and medical bills, I expanded Kyler's Kicks to include Kyler's Kicks Lounge. Kyler's Kicks Lounge has less then 1000 sq ft in our space. Being the only truly free space in Las Vegas for teens in 6th-12th grade to participate in free mental health and life skills programs, we are sadly turning away an average of 6 teens per day and adding them to our long waiting list. In the past year, we have helped hundreds of teens and their familes plus thousands of our homeless friends in need at Kyler's Kicks Lounge. Now we definitely need a larger space especially with COVID-19 restrictions. I have already found our dream building. The building owner is amazing. She is willing to work with me. She will rent us the building at a discounted price which is about 1/3 of the fair market value until we are in a financial position as an organization to purchase this building from her. This building has everything and more that we need to expand Kyler's Kicks Lounge at just under 5,000 sq ft. I am forever grateful for any and all support to expand Kyler's Kicks Lounge. Together we can help so many more teens in need.
