Brooke Neubauer, CEO and founder of The Just One Project, is a life-long Las Vegan, wife, mother, business owner, and advocate. In 2009, Brooke was introduced to giving back and making a difference through a friend. That holiday season they adopted a child to give gifts for Christmas. The impact it made touched her heart and she was changed forever. Brooke believes that it takes just one person to make a difference and she wanted to inspire others to join her mission of making an impact in the community and in the lives of others.
Since founding The Just One Project in 2014, it has become one of the fastest-growing nonprofit organizations in southern Nevada. The Just One Project’s mission is to connect the community through giving back. Through its mission, The Just One Project has successfully connected hundreds of people every month to incredible volunteer opportunities.
Brooke’s future goals are to continue to connect people through giving back while innovating and creating new locations and programs that provide hunger relief in local food deserts. She believes every neighborhood in southern Nevada should have access to fresh groceries and that food support should not come with stigmas.
