60+ Representative Payee Program
The Clark County Public Guardian's Office has over a hundred clients enrolled in its voluntary 60+ Representative Payeeship Program. Clients enrolled in this program receive assistance in managing their finances. Services include ensuring monthly bills are paid on behalf of a client to ensure shelter, food, and clothing needs are met. This service prevents homelessness.
Clients referred to the program are individuals identified as having difficulty with budgeting their monthly income. In many cases, they need help with paying rent, utilities, and other basic necessities due to mental illness, exploitation, addictions to drugs, alcohol, and/or gambling. Additionally, services may be sought for individuals who may have visual limitations or an inability to read or write.
