As a single mother of two children, Sheila needed help providing for her family after being furloughed from her job as a teacher. For months, she searched for a way to pay essential bills but kept falling further behind on her rent and utilities. When she reached out to a local agency for assistance, they told her about funding from United Way of Southern Nevada that could help her keep her family in their home and get back on their feet. Through your support, Sheila got the financial assistance she needed to pay her bills and started on the path to recovery.

Together with our local community partners, we gave Sheila the financial assistance she needed to get back on her feet. When people reach out to United Way of Southern Nevada for help, they’re in search of hope for a brighter tomorrow. Sheila is just one of the thousands of Southern Nevadans who need some hope.
