Ensuring Pathways out of Crisis are Available to All in our Community

 

INVESTING IN COMMUNITY SUPPORT

While children and students are learning and progressing to future success, they need stable families and communities to support them.

 

PROGRAMS AND SERVICES​

We provide emergency shelter, food support, utilities assistance, rent and mortgage assistance, health services, language access, crisis support, and service navigation.

 

RESULTS & OUTCOMES​

Over the past 3 years, through United Way of Southern Nevada’s support, more than 701,000 people in Southern Nevada received emergency services and support from over 100 partner nonprofit service providers.

 

IMPACT IN THE COMMUNITY​

​From 2015 to 2019, the proportion of people in Clark County living with lower incomes declined by 4% (to 33%); the poverty rate fell by 2% (to 14%)​.

Helping Homeless Youth Receive Compassionate Care

Antonio, a local teenager, was homeless and had nowhere to turn. He was unemployed and had severely uncontrolled diabetes and experienced multiple hospitalizations. Through the support of UWSN and our partners, Nevada Health Centers, he received countless hours of support from mentors who helped Antonio go from hopeless to successful with a promising future. Antonio now has his own apartment, is working full-time at Raising Cane’s, and has his diabetes under control. Through this program, Antonio was inspired to give back to other homeless youth and is now a mentor providing the support they need to get back on their feet. He recently shared that he is excited to take new steps towards his ultimate goal of becoming a nurse.
