Community Pride Economic Resource Guide

Posted: Updated:

Southern Nevada continues to face economic hardship from the severe recession that swept the nation beginning in 2007. Unemployment rates in the state have fallen from their peak but remain among the highest in the country. Home values remain far below what they once were, and many homeowners still struggle to pay their mortgages. The once booming construction industry also continues to face hard times, and the tourism industry is looking forward to better days ahead.

Many Southern Nevadans find themselves in unfamiliar situations such as having to deal with layoffs or foreclosure. But there are resources available to assist struggling individuals and their families. Even those who have avoided an economic crisis can benefit by becoming familiar with their legal rights, area agencies and other resources.

As rough economic times continue, the demand for services from organizations listed in this guide increase, as does the need for increased financial and volunteer support. If you are financially stable, please consider how you may help.
