CARE Teams

Clark County Social Service also provides outreach and case management through a variety of CARE Teams. Participation in these programs is not contingent upon an immigrant having legal U.S. Residency status. Some of these CARE Teams work in collaboration specifically with community partners such Clark County Park Police, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and the Clark County Detention Center. Referrals must come from these community partners or can be identified through collaborative outreach efforts conducted with these community providers.

Two of these teams (one focused on families and one working with individuals) are specifically focused on housing and respond to referrals from community partners. They can assist with finding housing solutions by linking them to housing resources, problem solving housing solutions, and providing connections to community partners. They can also place, and case manage clients in non-congregate shelters.  For additional information, please email
