Get to Know Us
Evolving the landscape of child foster care in Nevada, Bamboo Sunrise, founded by our CEO and Owner, Ms. Shirley Lim Holdeman, in November 2011, has been propelled by an unwavering focus on the well-being of Nevada's children. As an institution born and nurtured in Nevada, Bamboo Sunrise's passion lies solely in supporting Nevadan children to flourish within their home state. Our impact is not diluted across national endeavors – we are devoted Nevadans who strive to uplift our local community.
Bamboo Sunrise stands as a sanctuary for children in our state who require a home, projecting a paradigm shift in the realm of foster care. As the driving force behind this transformative organization, Ms. Holdeman champions change by leaning on the three pillars of ability, willingness, and resources to redefine what foster care can mean for a child's future.
We recognize children as the heart of our tomorrow at Bamboo Sunrise. The future they mold for themselves has far-reaching implications that are almost unfathomable. Proudly wearing the badge of being the leading Youth Social Services Organization in the Henderson area, we create an empowering environment for the youth under our care. Here, they are encouraged to fully manifest their identities while acquiring the skills necessary to shape our future.
Our objectives are to infuse their lives with positive values and habits, impart essential lessons of social responsibility, foster healthy living, and promote understanding and acceptance of cultural diversity.
