Description

We want to show you how your donations change the lives of at-risk youth in our community! With your donations, the Nevada Children's Health Project, a program of Nevada Health Centers, provides essential healthcare services to homeless and disenfranchised youth through “Big Blue”, a mobile healthcare unit.

On June 12, our partners at Nevada Health Centers will bring their Big Blue bus to the United Way of Southern Nevada (UWSN) office. During this event, our donors will be able to tour Big Blue and learn about the NCHP program. Food and beverages will be provided during the event. This event will be held at the UWSN office, which is located at 5830 West Flamingo Road. We would love for you to attend and see how Big Blue helps children across Southern Nevada!

As your ticket to tour Big Blue, Nevada Health Centers is requesting donations of sturdy backpacks and school supplies to be distributed to clients in need.

About the Nevada Children's Health Project

Furthermore, 92% of Nevada's homeless youth live in Clark County. The NCHP provides a safe place for at-risk youth to access health care services and resources. Join us for this event to learn how your donations support a program that changes the lives of children in our community.
