Shine A Light

"May the Good Lord shine a light on you,
Make every song your favorite tune.
May the Good Lord shine a light on you,
Warm like the evening sun."

"Shine a Light"
The Rolling Stones

Shine a Light is a community project that helps the hundreds of men and women living in the underground flood channels of Las Vegas. Founded by Beneath the Neon author Matthew O'Brien, the project provides water, food, clothes, blankets and other items (when available) to the people in the tunnels. It also provides a variety of services, including housing, drug, medical and mental-health counseling, case management and referrals. To provide these services, Shine a Light collaborates with HELP of Southern Nevada and its professional outreach staff.
