Equity Statement

Clark County Community Services recognizes past and present injustice and we work to heal it. We believe that everyone deserves to live a healthy and safe life. We have a moral obligation to support all members of our community who are underserved and underrepresented. 

To achieve more equitable services, we must be inclusive and work in partnerships within our community. We use our commitment to equity to inform everything we do to address disparities. We actively listen to and center the voices of those who have been historically underrepresented in order to challenge structural and institutional racism and discrimination.  We honor and respect the experiences and perspectives of the people we serve. We look inward to challenge our own beliefs and barriers. We engage and support diverse communities so that they thrive. 

We celebrate our community becoming more diverse and hold that our journey and success are intertwined with each other.

 

Community Services' Strategic Plan 2017-2022

Clark County’s mission is to enhance the quality of life in our diverse community by providing services with integrity, openness, and accountability. Our community is becoming more diverse and has surmounted many changes over recent years. It is imperative that Community Services continues to use public resources effectively and efficiently to serve our County’s most vulnerable populations, to help them access services and opportunities that lead to a better life.

Through an inclusive, staff-led effort, that included feedback from our department’s community advisory boards, county staff, and technical consultants, the Community Services’ Strategic Plan is now available.
