WHAT WE DO
NEVADA Children's Health Project
The Nevada Children’s Health Project (NVCHP), in partnership with Nevada Health Centers, Inc. (NVHC), provides comprehensive health care services to children and families in both the Las Vegas area and the most geographically isolated communities throughout the state.
Between NVCHP’s mobile medical clinic and fixed site clinics, NVCHP aims to provide comprehensive healthcare services to Nevada’s most under-resourced children. In 2019, Nevada’s child poverty rate was 16.9%, ranking 30th in the country.
The mobile medical unit primarily serves children and adolescents ages 0-21 in the greater Las Vegas area many of whom are unstably housed, have run away from home, or have been victims of human trafficking.
