For more than 50 years, HELP of Southern Nevada has assisted families and individuals throughout Southern Nevada to overcome barriers and attain self-sufficiency through direct services, training, and referral to community resources, according to its president and chief executive officer, Fuilala Riley.

Riley recently presented an overview of her organization to UNLV’s Community Engagement Council. She shared that HELP of Southern Nevada serves the tiniest of clients, including newborns of young mothers, to the elderly and every one between.

Each year, 170 employees assist tens of thousands of clients through 10 different departments and more than 40 programs. Offerings include adult housing programs, behavioral health services, family housing services, a low-cost home and building supply program, holiday programs, homeless response teams, a center for homeless youth, weatherization programs, and workforce services.
