Las Vegas Community Contributions

Our team believes in giving back to the community by volunteering, supporting, organizing, donating to, and even founding worthy local causes. One of Steve Jones’ most notable contributions is being a founding and board member (1996 to 2007) of the Boys Hope Girls Hope group home.

The organization helped academically capable and motivated children-in-need to meet their full potential as men and women by providing value centered, family-like homes, opportunities and education through college. Merlin Custom Home Builders, along with Del Webb, our contractors and suppliers, all donated time and materials to create a 4,700-square-foot home to house six boys and three staff members. All but $10,000 of the total costs were covered through these efforts.
