THE BLUE PRINT/ VEGAS VIKINGS
The blue print for how Heroes United succeeded to revamp the most dangerous community in Las Vegas; Sierra Oeste and achieve a record 75% reduction in violent crime is presented in the feature documentary Vegas Vikings by Christian Schoyen. The entire project from start to finish, with each step, this including all four phases of the 21 day project, to help children in low income communities is documented.
The goal is now that other struggling communities throughout Nevada and the US will duplicate the blue print used to achieve the great success in Sierra Oeste.
