Caridad strives to humanize the homeless by providing customer service based street outreach. The agency is able to do this at the lowest cost possible by partnering with existing Clark County agencies. Caridad, simply meaning “charity” in Spanish and Portugese. Caridad was originally created in 2010 to collect sock and underwear donations for local homeless charities. Homeless affects the entire community. The cost ignoring homelessness is far greater than dealing with it proactively. Caridad partners with local homeless agencies, police, and experts on homeless issues to educate the public. Caridad challenges you to take action. Together we can end homelessness.
