*Kayleigh was optimistic about starting a new career before the COVID-19 hit. Due to the pandemic, Kayleigh never had the privilege of starting her job and became unemployed, like many Southern Nevadans. Her determination to provide for herself and her young child during the COVID19 pandemic paid off through applying for help through our Emergency Assistance and Community Needs partner HELP of Southern Nevada.

UWSN and HELP provided Kayleigh and her child with financial assistance to help them get back on their feet. Kayleigh later reached out and shared her gratitude for the financial assistance and for lightening the heavy burden she bared. COVID-19 brought unexpected hardships to what was going to be a year of excitement and growth for everyone. UWSN and our nonprofit partners have reached out to the community to lend a helping hand and encourage Southern Nevadans to do the same. If you would like to get involved and give some hope to someone in need, please visit uwsn.org/donate.
