THE NEVADA RESILIENCE PROJECT

The Nevada Resilience Project supports families and individuals experiencing struggles and challenges due to COVID-19.

We are all trying to balance different challenges right now. It’s normal to be experiencing difficulty with adapting to the new challenges of managing work, school, family, or home due to COVID-19, feeling isolated or anxious, or worried about meeting basic needs like having enough food or access to healthcare.

In this challenging time, you are not alone.

Click on the teal bar below to be connected with a Resilience Ambassador. Your Ambassador can provide support and connection to resources over the phone, through text and video-chat, or face to face. We offer bilingual access to services; assistance navigating to needed resources in your community; and help to reduce stress, build coping skills, and develop a resilience plan.

Karla Ramirez Nevada Resilience Project

Karla Ramirez – Ambassador: S. NV Health District

As an independent business owner, I have developed years of working with our community members.

As a Hispanic female I was considered part of the minority group and yet managed to be successful throughout my years in business.

Raising three children has been the most rewarding event of my life and I enjoy every minute I get to spend and engage with them.

Motivation Thursdays with Mrs. Samuels

Amanda Samuels is a Licensed Therapist practicing in Las Vegas. She is proud to be married to someone working on the frontlines during this pandemic. She has made it her goal to let all of the frontline, behind the scenes, and all of those in between workers and community members know how much they are appreciated and that their mental health matters.

Each week she provides a message in hopes to validate, educate, or encourage in regards to what you might be experiencing as you navigate the pandemic. She is honored to be sharing with you!
