Catholic Charities

Child and Family Services

Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada offers a variety of programs designed to help families, the homeless and individuals get back on the path to self-sufficiency. Services include housing, food, job training resources, case management and more.

Adoption

Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada has decided to re-brand and create a separate company for its Adoption Services Program. The new company is called Loving Hearts Adoption Services. Under the new name, we will be able to build off nearly a century of experience - facilitating thousands of adoptions with better public visibility from under the former identity of Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada Adoption Services and focus on best serving all members of the adoption triad: birth families & parents, adoptive parents and adoptees. The program will stand alone with a separate logo and collateral materials for promotion of its services.

Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada has a long-standing commitment to fighting hunger and improving nutrition for low-income and fixed-income clients includes a special focus on homebound seniors.

What We Do

Catholic Charities has been providing "Meals on Wheels" to older adults in southern Nevada since 1975.

  • Catholic Charities delivers meals directly to homebound seniors in Las Vegas and North Las Vegas at no cost to the client.
  • The Meals on Wheels Program delivers a set of seven nutritionally balanced, frozen meals to 2,300 clients each and every week throughout the year.
  • The meals are delivered by caring, compassionate delivery drivers.

Beyond the meals, delivery drivers also make weekly wellness checks by phone and deliver donated pet food for those who have pet companions. For some clients, this is the only real outside contact they have with someone. For these seniors, a real bond often develops with our drivers.

Benefits from Meals On Wheels:

  • Helps seniors to eat healthier
  • Improves their overall health
  • Homebound seniors feel more secure
  • Allows seniors to live in their own homes independently
  • Receive weekly wellness checks by phone
It costs less to provide a senior this service for an entire year than it costs to spend one day in the hospital or six days in a nursing home. Meals On Wheels is funded through grants for 56% of the total meal cost. The remaining cost has to be raised and paid by the agency.

We are grateful to our wonderful sponsors of the Meals on Wheels Program:

Department of Health & Human Services - Aging and Disability Services Division
UnitedHealthCare
Thomas Spiegel Family FoundationClark County
Mayor Carolyn Goodman and the City of Las Vegas
City of North Las Vegas
Caesars Foundation
