About Us

The Clark County Public Guardian’s Office is invested with the duty of taking care of individuals who are legally determined to be incapable of taking care of themselves.  The seven elected members of the Clark County Commission appoint the Public Guardian to oversee the Office.  Karen Kelly was appointed Public Guardian on February 7, 2017.
The voluntary sixty and over Representative Payee Program assists individuals in managing their monthly income while maintaining their independence.  This is a public service offered to help people maintain independent lives.
