Local residents may obtain a food box once month at the CRFB. The amount of food and specific items may vary based upon several factors such as the amount of food product on hand and the number of members in the household. They also provide quality used clothing which is offered on a first-come, first-served basis to clients who simply take the items they need from the display racks in our lobby. There are also other food assistance programs.

Finding Nevada Medicaid Providers
Finding health care providers who will accept Medicaid from Nevada is difficult, all the more so here in the Tri-State Area. Many offices will accept Arizona Medicaid but not Nevada Medicaid. To obtain a current list of Nevada Medicaid providers go to:
Confidential Address program for Victims of Domestic Violence or Sexual Assault
(888) 432-6189 or (775) 684-5707 http://nvsos.gov/index.aspx?page=60 Are You Afraid Of Being Found By Your Abuser?
The program works by granting participants the use of a fictitious mailing address. When victims enter into business relationships with state and local agencies, the use of the fictitious address both maintains the victims' confidentiality and relieves those agencies of the difficult and costly responsibilities of maintaining confidential records. The program greatly reduces the risk of being tracked by public records. Another benefit of this program is confidential voter registration records. Pursuant to NRS (Nevada Revised Statutes) 217.464, qualified electors who become participants in the Confidential Address Program may register to vote and vote by absent ballot without revealing the physical address of the participant. Additionally, participants in the Confidential Address Program are exempt from Jury Duty.
Presently there are over 870 participants in CAP, who are using the benefits in the program to further secure the lives they are living outside of the environment they fled.
The Nevada Employment Security Division (ESD) provides comprehensive employment and training services to Nevada workers. The Division runs the state unemployment insurance program. Employment Service programs offer job placement and training opportunities that assist job seekers in returning to work through the state’s workforce investment system, Nevada JobConnect. Job seeker services include job referral, career guidance, and skill enhancement training.
The Nevada Homemaker Program is an essential community-based
service based on the principle that in-home care can help preserve or
improve the quality of the recipients' lives and reduce the need for
unnecessary out-of-home care.
Homemaker services enable chronically ill, disabled and aged persons to remain in their homes.
