Thank you for attending the Thriving Communities for a Better Southern Nevada forum on January 10, 2020!
Around 200 local decision-makers from business, philanthropy, social services, as well as local, state and federal government, convened to address specific barriers many children and families in Southern Nevada face in overcoming the cycle of poverty. Together, attendees created strategic action plans targeting three key areas:
• Widening career pathways for the chronically underemployed
• Connecting low-income youth to employment and other help
• Facilitating economic mobility for single parents in poverty
Clark County, Nevada was chosen by the federal government to host this forum due to its track record of successful collaboration between social service, government, business, workforce and education-based agencies.
