We’re in this together!

The number of families in Clark County living in poverty is growing. This strains our families, businesses, and the health of our community. Clark County leaders are working together to address this issue, but we need your support. Help us create a service hub for low-income families that will strengthen the access to—and effectiveness of—supports necessary to break the cycle of poverty.

The Bridgeview Education and Employment Resource Center will bring low-income families and service providers together in a new way—a cost effective way. Please join us in an opportunity to learn about why leaders in government, employment, education and more support this exciting project.

Your philanthropy will make the Bridgeview Resource Center a reality. Bridgeview Resource Center – Partners. Purpose. People. Place. It All Happens Here!
