Agency History:          In 2000, 24-7 TLC, founder of Rivendel, embarked on its first three-year project with the
                         University of Chicago, Chapin Hall. During this research project 24-7 TLC recognized
                         serious gaps in basic support services for young adults who were making an effort to
                         better their lives, all of which were at risk for homelessness or were homeless, aging out
                         of foster care or coming out of treatment programs. Due to the success and the
                         community awareness through this initiative, the Youth Parole Bureau and the Department
                         of Child and Family Services approached 24-7 TLC to pilot an independent living program
                         that would encompass the basic needs of young adults transitioning from foster care and
                         homelessness. The result of this pilot program was the State of Nevada receiving TLP
                         funding from the federal government and 24-7 opening Rivendel Independence Living.

                         interesting pasts to share. And futures still to be lived. Part of doing that is being able to let
                         go of the day-to-day worries of life, and focus on life itself. Which is where ¡egis comes
                         in.And itís not simply living ñ itís living well. As we age, we donít lose our taste for good
                         food, interesting experiences, family and laughter, or our desire to live in a comfortable,
                         attractive home. ¡egis Living provides a diverse group of community options to meet
                         seniors' needs: ¡egis Senior Living, ¡egis Assisted Living, ¡egis Senior Inns, and our
                         managed communities. Memory care is offered at many of our assisted living

Target Population:       Seniors suffering from Alzheimer's and/or Dementia.
Agency History:          ¡egis was co-founded in 1997 by CEO/President Dwayne Clark and Bill Gallaher. Dwayne
                         honed his operations expertise as Director of Operations for Leisure Care, and then as
                         Executive Vice President at Sunrise Assisted Living. Bill brought an extensive background
                         in senior housing construction. Today, ¡egisLiving is one of the most admired and
                         emulated companies in the industry. When he opened ¡egis, Dwayne pioneered unique
                         ideas like regular massage therapy to improve circulation of residents, 1940s-era cars
                         parked at the communities that residents can ìdrive,î and video game consoles to
                         entertain the grand kids. Like so many others, they came from his ìBox of Frustrated
                         Ideas,î an accordion file where ideas were kept until Dwayne had his own company and
                         could create what he wanted. That has made his residents very happy.

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Mission:                 It is the mission to assist persons with developmental disabilities, including infants at risk
                         and their families by providing and securing those services and supports necessary to
                         maximize opportunities and choices. The success of the Center is the extent to which it
                         enhances the quality of individual an family life and improves the consumer's and the
                         family's satisfaction with the services received from or though the Regional Center.
Description of Programs: The Alta California Regional Center (ACRC) provides a wide array of services and support
                         to more than 11,500 people with developmental disabilities (including at-risk infants) and
                         their families. ACRC, one of 21 non-profit corporations under contract with the California
                         Dept. of Developmental Services, serves a ten-county area from Sacramento to the
                         Nevada border. A developmental disability means a disability atributable to mental
                         retardation, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, or other handicapping condition closely
                         related to mental retardation. Other offices in California are Auburn, Sacramento, Grass
                         Valley, Placerville, Woodland, Roseville and Yuba City.
Target Population:       Persons with developmental disabilities and their families.
Agency History:          History of Regional Centers/Lanterman Act: The twenty-one regional centers within the
                         State of California provide a coordinated system for diagnosing individuals suspected of or
                         having a developmental disability and helping people with these disabilities to make use of
                         all essential public and private services to meet their special needs (medical and dental,
                         educational, recreational, vocational, social and emotional).The regional center system
                         was established to provide coordinated planning for lifetime community care for people
                         with developmental disability as a viable alternative to Developmental Center placement.
                         The goal of regional center services is to enhance and maximize the functioning of each
                         person with a developmental disability to avoid the development of secondary disabilities,
                         and to reduce the incidence of developmental disabilities through a vigorous program of
                         identification, education, and prevention.Regional centers were established through state
                         legislation sponsored primarily by Assemblyman Frank Lanterman. In 1965, pilot projects
                         were initiated in San Francisco and Los Angeles to assist mentally retarded persons and
                         their families in locating, or spearheading the development of community services and
                         programs for their special needs.In 1969, AB 225 (Lanterman Mental Retardation Services
                         Act) established a statewide system of regional centers based upon the pilot projects. In
                         the first three years of operation, there were seven regional centers statewide; since then,
                         the number of regional centers has grown to the current number of twenty-one.In 1974,
                         the additional legislation (AB 846-Lanterman) went into effect which expanded the
                         clientele served by the regional centers to include persons with cerebral palsy, epilepsy,
                         autism, and other significantly handicapping conditions found to be closely related to
                         mental retardation. It has been estimated that 5% of the population in California has a
                         significant developmental disability. Regional Centers currently serve approximately
                         180,000 people.Alta California Regional Center currently serves the residents of Alpine,
                         Colusa, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Sierra, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties.

Agency History:          The Early Days A pioneering group of physicians and social workers formed the first
                         Association for the Prevention and Relief of Heart Disease in New York City in 1915. They
                         were concerned about the lack of heart disease information. At that time, heart disease
                         patients were considered doomed, limited to complete bed rest. So these physicians
                         conducted studies in New York City and Boston to find out whether heart disease patients
                         could safely return to work. Similar groups in Boston, Philadelphia, and Chicago evolved
                         into heart associations in the 1920s. Interest spread widely in other cities across the
                         United States and Canada. Recognizing the need for a national organization to share
                         research findings and promote further study, six cardiologists representing several groups
                         founded the American Heart Association in 1924. The founding members were Drs. Lewis
                         A. Conner and Robert H. Halsey of New York; Paul D. White of Boston; Joseph Sailer of
                         Philadelphia; Robert B. Preble of Chicago; and Hugh D. McCulloch of St. Louis. Drs.
                         James B. Herrick of Chicago and William S. Thayer of Baltimore were also instrumental in
                         the early planning. Dr. White, president of AHA in 1941, once described the early years as
                         a time of "almost unbelievable ignorance" about heart disease. The early efforts of the
                         American Heart Association to overcome that ignorance included enlisting help from
                         hundreds, then thousands, of physicians and scientists.By the late 1930s, AHA members
                         began considering ways to expand their activities to reach the general public. In 1946 the
                         American Legion donated $50,000 to the AHA for research and to develop a community
                         rheumatic fever program. Public support and funds established this and other programs.
                         To broaden its scope, the AHA reorganized in 1948 and brought in non-medical
                         volunteers with skills in business management, communication, public education,
                         community organization and fund raising.The American Heart Association made its public
                         debut in late 1948 during a network radio contest, "The Walking Man," on the "Truth or
                         Consequences" program hosted by Ralph Edwards. Millions of Americans sent
                         contributions to the AHA along with guesses on the walking man's identity. The effort
                         netted $1.75 million before Jack Benny was identified as the "Walking Man."A small
                         national staff in New York City then began to organize American Heart Association
                         divisions across the country. They launched the first national fund-raising campaign the
                         following year in February 1949, raising $2.7 million.The American Heart Association's
                         GrowthSince 1949, the American Heart Association has grown rapidly in size, financial
                         resources, involvement with medical and non-medical volunteers, and influence -- both
                         nationally and internationally. The AHA moved the National Center from New York City to
                         Dallas in 1975 to better serve affiliates and local divisions nationwide. The volunteer-led
                         affiliates and their divisions form a national network of local AHA organizations involved in



                                                                                               Printed on 12/19/2006

                             providing research, education, and community programs and in raising money to support
                             the association's work. The network continues to gain strength as it expands at the grass-
                             roots level.The AHA completed significant internal changes between 1980 and 1986,
                             allowing it to reach the public with a louder, clearer voice. During the next eight years, the
                             association became a much more visible champion of public health. The AHA also
                             developed guidelines for the nation's healthcare system and supported the federal
                             government's attempt to improve access to healthcare.At the same time, the AHA
                             continued to strengthen its internal programs and its internal management. The
                             association revised its mission statement and focused its planning in three areas:
                             cardiovascular science, cardiovascular education and community programs, and fund
                             raising efforts. Achievements included stricter research standards, new healthcare site
                             modules, and development of several new cookbooks. Large gifts allowed the AHA to
                             support new research projects, move all scientific staff into one building, and sponsor
                             creative professional education programs. Efforts to include more women and minorities in
                             the leadership ranks began to pay off by the late 1980s, resulting in more efforts to
                             understand the effects of heart disease and stroke on women and minorities.The mid-
                             1990s were a time of great change in the American Heart Association. The association's
                             scientific findings began to move more quickly from laboratories and clinics to physician's
                             offices and American households. The AHA took positions on important issues and made
                             clear, simple statements about controlling risk factors. Volunteers and staff agreed on a
                             strategy for improving affiliate research programs, and the national organization created
                             new divisions dealing with stroke and emergency cardiac care. To reduce costs and
                             increase international circulation, the association outsourced the publication of its scientific
                             journals and began publishing them online.Despite strong opposition from the tobacco
                             industry, the American Heart Association continued to be an advocate for the American
                             public, especially children.Finally, and most profoundly, AHA volunteers and staff began
                             transforming the organization into an enterprise that could be vibrant and relevant in the
                             21st century. The change was deeper than anything since 1948, when the AHA
                             transformed itself from a scientific society into a voluntary health agency. The first step
                             was in identifying the organization's strategic driving force in March 1995: Providing
                             credible heart disease and stroke information for effective prevention and
                             treatment.Agreement on the driving force made it clear that individual Americans, not the
                             AHA's affiliates, were the National Center's primary audience. The new driving force
                             altered the whole organization, which can be seen in the decision to become a single
                             corporation in June 1997. This action reinforced the spirit of cooperation that people
                             brought to the effort.

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Mission:                 The American Liver Foundation is the nation's leading nonprofit organization promoting
                         liver health and disease prevention. ALF provides research, education and advocacy for
                         those affected by hepatitis and other liver-related diseases.
Description of Programs: Provides general education to increase public appreciation and understanding of social,
                         human and economic costs imposed by diseases of the liver, gallbladder and bile ducts.
                         Hotline for information on liver diseases and treatments:(800-223-0179)
Agency History:          Although liver disease is among the ten major causes of death in the United States, there
                         was no national voluntary health agency devoted exclusively to combating liver diseases
                         until 1976, when the American Liver Foundation was formed. In 1974, the Governing
                         Board of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) formed a
                         committee to study the role of a voluntary health agency to combat liver disease and to
                         develop a plan for initiating such an organization. The committee was chaired by Dr.
                         Burton Combes, a former AASLD President and Professor of Internal Medicine at the
                         University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. Other members included Dr.
                         James Boyer, Director of Yaleís Liver Unit in New Haven; Dr. E. Rolland Dickson, Mayo
                         Clinic; Dr. Lawrence Gartner, Albert Einstein College of Medicine; Dr. Carroll Leevy,
                         College of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey; Dr. Willis Maddrey, Johns Hopkins
                         School of Medicine; Dr. Allan Redeker, University of Southern California School of
                         Medicine; Dr. Fenton Schaffner, Mount Sinai School of Medicine; and Dr. John Senior,
                         Graduate Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.Their study indicated that a voluntary
                         organization could play a significant role in combating liver disease and reversing years of
                         neglect of this major health hazard. In 1976, the American Liver Foundation was
                         incorporated with these physicians serving as founders and the original Board of
                         Directors.In 1979, the ALF granted its first Student Research Fellowships and awarded a
                         Research Prize for the outstanding research project to a Postdoctoral Fellow. Since the
                         inception of the Scientific Grants Program, ALF has provided over $14 million in scientific
                         grants to Liver Scholars, Postdoctoral Fellows, Physician Researchers, and Student
                         Researchers. The strength of the American Liver Foundation lies in its chapters. As
                         recently as 1997, ALFís chapters served only 26% of the country, with one full-time staff
                         member. Currently, ALF has 25 chapters and more than 200 support groups, serving over
                         75% of the country. Chapters have developed a host of methods to drive home messages
                         of liver health through such programs as Liver Updates, support groups, screening
                         programs and Organ Donor Awareness. They have also had great success developing
                         such distinctive fundraising activities as Flavors of... events, Liver Walks, and Bid for
                         Life.There has been much progress since 1976, but the challenge remains. Many serious
                         liver diseases are potentially preventable; education about them can give individuals an
                         opportunity to participate in their own preventive health care. An increase in research can
                         make it possible to develop improved treatments and find cures.

Agency History:          On May 21, 1881 Clara Barton founded the American Association of the American Red
                         Cross. Her unique contribution to the worldwide Red Cross Movement was organizing
                         volunteers to help disaster victims. In 1905 the original 1900 congressional charter of the
                         American Red Cross was revised giving the organization the foundation upon which it
                         providesn disaster relief and assistance to the military today. In 1909 Jane Delano
                         founded American Red Cross Nursing Corps. In 1910 the American Red Cross First Aid
                         Program began, and in 1914 the American Red Cross Water Safety Program was
                         established. In 1917 Junior Red Cross began and in 1919 the League of the Red Cross
                         Societies was established in Geneva, Switzerland through the efforts of an American
                         volunteer, Henry P. Davidson. The American Red Cross- Winemucca Service Center was
                         established seven years ago. It has a volunteer base of approximately 450 volunteers

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Mission:                 Angel Kiss Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families with
                         children diagnosed with cancer with unmet financial needs.
Description of Programs: Angel Kiss Foundation (AKF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families with
                         children who are being treated for cancer. AKF provides financial assistance to families
                         including: medical expenses, insurance deductibles, uncovered procedures, household
                         living expenses, mortgage payments, rent, food, utilities, travel expenses related to
                         treatment, and additional expenses the family needs assistance with during the child's
                         treatment. Additionally, AKF works with otehr agencies to ensure the families' needs are
                         met in a timely manner and that services do not overlap, preventing a duplication of funds.
                         (775-323-7721)
Target Population:       Families who have children diagnosed with cancer.
Agency History:          AFK began in Virginia in 1990 with the death of five year old JArryd. Jarryd was
                         diagnosed with leukemia in 1987 and his grandparents, David and Barbara Rosin
                         recognized the overwhelming costs associated with the disease, in addition to medical
                         expenses. In his memory, the Angel Kiss Foundation was named for a birthmark on
                         Jarryd's cheek, which the family referred to as Jarryd's angel kiss.The Rosins relocated to
                         Reno in 1995 and realizing that because there was no pediatric oncology treatment center
                         in northern Nevada and the eastern Sierra, children and their families would have to travel
                         out of state for treatment. From personal experience and understanding the astronomical
                         costs associated with cancer, the Rosins saw the need for an organization to help families
                         in northern Nevada. In 1997 the Angel Kiss Foundation was founded. To date, AKF has
                         helped more than 70 families.

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Mission:                 To assist disadvantaged children affected by parents who fail to meet their legal, moral
                         and financial obligations to support their children.
Description of Programs: ACES offers "how to " instructions and educational information about child support
                         enforcement, visitation rights and paternity determination. ACES provides a telephone
                         "hot-line" for affected families across the country who are seeking information and
                         understanding. ACES conducts public awareness campaigns through news releases and
                         community action.
Target Population:       Parents whose children are entitled to support.
Agency History:          ACES Founded Out of Necessity After her divorce, Geraldine Jensen returned to Toledo
                         from Omaha, Nebraska with her two young sons, Matthew, 4, and Jake, 18 months. For
                         six months, her former husband paid child support.Then he abruptly stopped. Unable to
                         make enough money to support her family as a library aide, she was forced to go on
                         welfare. Bolstered by federal grants from Pell and Title XX, Gerri returned to school in
                         1980 and graduated from Bowling Green School of Practical Nursing a year later. Though
                         she was struggling, Gerri was making it until the end of 1983--when everything caved in.
                         Stricken with an illness that put her in intensive care, she was hospitalized for three
                         weeks. In addition, her son needed ear surgery to prevent hearing loss. With no money or
                         savings, she telephoned her caseworker of seven years at the County Welfare
                         Department to inquire about $12,000 due to her in back support. Informed that the County
                         Prosecutor's office had actually been handling the case, a bewildered and stunned Gerri
                         confronted the prosecutor.With her case file in front of him, he told Gerri that nothing could
                         be done about the child support collection. "If you can do a better job, then go right
                         ahead," he said.Geraldine Jensen did exactly that. She spent eight of her last $13 on a
                         classified ad in the Sunday Toledo Blade, an act which changed her life forever. The ad
                         read, "Not receiving your child support? Call me."Little did Gerri realize the effect this ad
                         would have on Toledo women. Ten women responded that Sunday evening. Within two
                         weeks, the Association For Children For Enforcement of Support (ACES) was formed -
                         with 50 women as members. Two months later, the group ballooned to 200. Now ACES is
                         the largest child support self-help group in the U.S., with 45,000 members and almost 168
                         chapters in 46 states!

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Description of Programs: With 129 communities in 27 states, Atria Senior Living Group offers residential services for
                         thousands of seniors. Atria communities provide a retirement lifestyle where seniors are
                         able to remain as independent and active as possible. And should the need for support or
                         additional care arise, most Atria communities offer customized levels of assisted living
                         services to accommodate seniors' needs. Many Atria communities also have specialized
                         Life Guidance neighborhoods for individuals with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of
                         dementia.Atria communities employ caring staff members who live in the area and
                         manage their communities locally. Each local team is supported by a national company of
                         experts drawing from more than 30 years of experience in elder care.Because every
                         resident is unique, so are our communities. Our mission calls for employees to take pride
                         in and responsibility for every aspect of their communities, the services they provide and
                         the individuals they support. We don't believe in a single blueprint for care that suits
                         everyone. Our communities are a reflection of our residents and the area in which they
                         live. Ultimately, we work each day to enhance the lives and exceed the expectations of all
                         our residents and their families.
Target Population:       Seniors needing assistance with everyday tasks (bathing, grooming, toileting, etc.) and

                         areas.
Agency History:          Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe was founded in 1998 in response to a lack of
                         affordable, year-round youth development services on the North Shore. Club programs
                         and services promote and enhance the development of youth by instilling a sense of
                         competence, usefulness, belonging, and influence. Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to
                         learn and grow- it is truly "The Positive Place for Kids".

Description of Programs: Programs to provide safe and positive place for youth ages 6-18 to go.
Target Population:           Children and youth, ages 6-18
Agency History:              In 1991, the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe was incorportated as a 501(c) (3) non-profit
                             organization. Community members formed a Board of Directors and began the process of
                             establishing youth development programs for the south shore community.By 1993, the
                             Club was accepted into the membership of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. This
                             same year the Club hired the first Executive Director and established school based
                             satellite programs. The programs were offered at five elementary schools within the Lake
                             Tahoe Unifed School District.The Club expanded into the state of Nevada in 1998 and
                             opened a site at a public housing unti. This expansion enforced the Club's mission of
                             serving youth in the south shore area regardless of which side of the state line they lived.
                             The housing facility was demolished on April of 2004, but it is still our mission to serve
                             children in both states.On July 10th, 2001, the Board of Director realized another long-
                             range goal by signing a joint use agrement with the Lake Tahoe Unified Schol District for
                             the construction and use of facilities between the two entities. Building plans are
                             underway and the Board is considering various types of building designs. With this
                             signing came a most generaous gift of $505,00 from the Park Cattle Company for costs
                             associated with construction.The Club is currently operating out of five protable
                             classrooms at Al Tahoe Elementary school. Centrally located, this site serves middle
                             school and elementary shool children. The Lake Tahoe Unified School District provides
                             transportation from the other elementary schools to our program.

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Description of Programs: This facility offers three programs to treat adolescent and young adult males with a history
                         of sex offender specific issues and other accute sexual problems.
Target Population:       Adolescent males between the ages of 13 and 18, or young men between the ages of 18
                         and 20, who have an identified need for sex offender specific treatment.
Agency History:          In 1995, Briarwood Treatment Services established a Theraputic Group Home program for
                         male juvenile sex offenders that offered sex offense specific treatment in a residential
                         home like setting. In response to the need to enhance the continuum of care that exists in
                         the community, the Independent Living Program was developed. This program promotes
                         life skills to assist the individual in preparing for a safe and full transition into the
                         community. For the developmentally delayed population, Briarwood provides an
                         additional treatment setting that addresses the specific needs of the adolescent with
                         behavioral and sex offending issues. All three of these programs are designed to
                         intervene early on in a child's life when sexual behavior problems first begin occurring.
                         Through the wide range of program components that make up Briarwood Treatment
                         Services, our chief concern is the individual. We are committed to developing young
                         people who can return to society and lead normal, productive lives.

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Mission:                 To promote the health, wellbeing, and quality of life for all who live in our community.
Description of Programs: At Carson Valley Medical Center, it is our mission to promote the health, wellbeing, and
                         quality of life for everyone who lives and works in our community. Setting the standard for
                         health care in the Carson Valley, CVMC offers the community a wide array of medical
                         services backed by a medical staff that is over 80 members strong.
Agency History:          Due to the high demand for medical services in the Carson Valley, Barton Memorial
                         Hospital joined a partnership with Washoe Medical Center and Doctors Joseph Heflin,
                         David Hoskins and David Johnson in order to develop a plan to provide these much
                         needed services to the area. The plan included a 28,000 square foot medical center in
                         Gardnerville in order to offer desperately needed outpatient and physician services in one
                         convenient location. Plans of building a 24 hour emergency clinic and ambulatory surgery
                         center were to be included Phase II. Phase I of Carson Valley Medical Center opened its
                         doors in December 1993. The 28,000 square foot building brought primary care, family
                         and internal medicine physicians, as well as outpatient services together under one roof.
                         The outpatient services covered a variety of areas such as laboratory, physical therapy,
                         pharmacy and medical imaging. The facility also housed a number of specialists including
                         orthopedics, podiatry, gynecology, urology and cardiology. Soon after the first phase was
                         complete, talk of beginning the second phase began. Barton was determined to bring
                         even more medical services to the community. Completed in 1995, the second phase of
                         the project brought an outpatient surgery center as well as 24-hour emergency care and
                         rehabilitation therapy to the Carson Valley Medical Center. These services provided the
                         residents of Carson Valley an opportunity to stay close to home for high quality medical
                         care, offering a great assortment of diagnostic tests, lab services and ambulatory surgery,
                         a great improvement but still no inpatient hospitalization. In 2004, the Critical Access
                         Hospital opens with 15 Acute Care beds. CVMC takes another giant leap forward with the
                         purchase of state-of-the-art MRI, CT Scanner, and Pulmonary Function Testing machines.
                         Today the facility offers visitors everything from the simplest physician visit to the
                         extensive support staff, from laboratory tests to breast biopsies, Ambulatory Surgery to
                         Physical Therapy, and urgent care to trauma air transport and hospitalization. CVMC
                         administration prides itself on being proactive as well as responsive to the needs of the
                         community.

Director's Position:       Executive Director

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Mission:                 The mission of CET is based on a philosophy of self-determination. CET seeks to promote
                         the human development and education of low income people by providing them with
                         marketable skills training and supportive services that contribute to economic self-
                         sufficiency.
Description of Programs: CET is a nonprofit organization that specializes in job training. Clients can begin training
                         at any time and then graduate when they have mastered the skills needed to get a job in
                         their chosen field. Clients work on projects at their own pace, using the same equipment
                         used on the job. GED preparation programs are also on site.(775-348-8668 or 800-533-
                         2519)
Target Population:       CET serves low-income, disadvantaged persons of all backgrounds interested in career
                         training.
Agency History:          In 1967, a group of concerned citizens formed a committee to establish a job training
                         center to serve the low income residents in San Jose, CA. The San Francisco
                         Archdiocese of the Catholic Church donated the initial development funds and Archbishop
                         McGucken pledged additional funds when actual training began. Founders Father
                         Anthony Soto and Russell Tershy, former Peace Corps Deputy Director, opened the first
                         CET training center in the back of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in the barrio "Sal Si
                         Puedes" ("Get Out if you Can") in San Jose, California's east side, where the staff initially
                         provided training for employment as machine tool operators. Dedicated founders, Father
                         Soto served on CET's Board of Directors until his death in 1997, while Mr. Tershy served
                         as CET's Executive Director for 32 years. Upon his retirement, Ms. Hermelinda Sapien
                         took over the Executive Director role, after having served as Deputy Director for over 12
                         years. The founder's initial purpose still drives the passion of each staff member, to this
                         day: "CET exists expressly for help those who want to help themselves".
Funded By:               over 50% from local, state, and federal government and the remainder from the private
                         sector.

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Description of Programs: Cocaine Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience,
                         strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem, and help
                         others to recover from their addiction. The only requirement for membership is a desire to
                         stop using cocaine and all other mind-altering substances. There are no dues or fees for
                         membership; we are fully self-supporting through our own contributions. We are not allied
                         with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution. We do not wish to engage
                         in any controversy and we neither endorse nor oppose any causes. Our primary purpose
                         is to stay free from cocaine and all other mind-altering substances, and to help others
                         achieve the same freedom.* We use the Twelve Steps of Recovery, because it has
                         already been proven that the Twelve-Step recovery program works. Call 1-800-347-8998
                         to for information about meetings in your area.
Target Population:       All persons who state a desire to stop using cocaine, including "crack" cocaine, as well as
                         all other mind-altering substances.
Agency History:          Cocaine Anonymous began in Los Angeles in 1982, and has since expanded throughout
                         the United States and Canada, with groups now forming in Europe.

Agency History:          CCOY was informally organized in 1989 at the grassroots level by community leaders,
                         parents and youth, after acknowledging that the youth in the community had needs that
                         were not being met. CCOY became a formal, non-profit prevention coalition in 1992. The
                         first needs assessment for youth was conducted in 1992 and out of that a plan was
                         developed and the Boys and Girls Club was born. In 1995, the Carson City Board of
                         Supervisors adopted Carson City Resolution No. 1995-R-20, designation CCOY as the
                         coordinating organization to continually assess the needs of Carson City's youth, identify
                         service gaps, develop plans to fill those gaps and avoid program duplicity.

                             are taught that the chemically dependent individual can break the cycle of addiction and

Mission:                 Community Services Agency's mission is: working with you to improve lives and
                         communities.
Description of Programs: CSA is a private, nonprofit corporation dedicated to helping residents of northern Nevada.
                         CSA oversees a number of programs that provide clients with such services as assistance
                         purchasing a home, Head Start pre-school and family development, and financial and
                         energy education.
Target Population:       The whole community, regardless of age, gender, race, or ethnicity.
Agency History:          Community Services Agency has been serving the people of Nevada since 1965. Since its
                         inception, the Agency has initiated and developed a variety of programs that have
                         benefited the residents of Nevada.In 1970, CSA initiated both a Podiatry Clinic and a Food
                         Bank. Both initiatives were very successful and in 1980 the Food Bank spun off and is
                         presently an independent nonprofit organization. In 1974, CSA gained recognition for its
                         Regional Head Start Home Base Training Center. In 1975, CSA initiated the first "Meals
                         on Wheels" in Washoe County.Because of its commitment to increasing the available
                         housing stock in Nevada for working families, CSA ventured into housing development. In
                         1986, CSA completed its first housing venture, the Willie Wynn Orvis Ring Apartments, a
                         HUD 202 project for seniors. It has since then developed 940+ family units throughout the
                         State of Nevada.In 1995, CSA initiated a Homebuyers Program offering downpayment
                         and/or closing costs assistance to working families and individuals to enable them to buy
                         their first home. In five years, 280 families have purchased homes through this
                         program.CSA continues its saga to explore new initiatives and expand its economic base
                         in order to assist Nevada's working families in improving their quality of life.

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Mission:                 Our mission is to function as a "virtual 411" safety destination, and to address the
                         concerns of parents, the needs of children, on-line abuse and cyber crime, while
                         supporting the right of free speech.
Description of Programs: Combats internet crime (cyberstalking, fraud/identity theft, hacking, etc.) via education and
                         prevention, assistance and training, and public/legisislative awareness.
Target Population:       Internet users.
Agency History:          Formed in 1995, a mere year and a-half after the World Wide Web was launched,
                         CyberAngels has already left its permanent mark on the Internet. It all started with a
                         phone call to Curtis Sliwa, founder and president of Guardian Angels. Curtis had become
                         a radio talk show host for WABC in New York. A woman called in, asking him what he
                         intended to do about cyberspace. Curtis took up the challenge, and appointed a few
                         Guardian Angels to help create the first cyber-stalking help program on IRC. Our program
                         began in IRC - with net-savvy Guardian Angels providing assistance to victims of stalking
                         in chatrooms. When law enforcement officers began volunteering just to receive training,
                         we created online classes for them in computer forensics and tracing and tracking online.
                         With the increased number of inexperienced users online, we realized the threat that their
                         unprotected computers posed to them and their communities. To help them along, we
                         created online resources directed to novice 'netizens', covering everything from net lingo
                         to firewall installation.As a new century began, Cyber@angels reached out to parents and
                         children, providing materials designed to empower parents so that they could effectively
                         parent their online children. More recently, we have taken our programs offline - into
                         schools and libraries. As part of our "Teaching the Teachers" initiative, we offer
                         comprehensive strategies that can be put in place to protect the staff, students and the
                         physical resources of the school from some of the risks related to Internet use.

Target Population:           Any veterans, widows of veterans or their dependents.
Agency History:              Following World War I, America's concern for its disabled veterans waned. Veterans took
                             matters into their own hands, starting self-help groups that eventually evolved into the
                             DAV. The DAV was chartered by Congress in 1932. In 1935, DAV began stationing
                             veterans' benefits experts in the Veterans Bureau (today's Department of Veterans Affairs)
                             and hospitals across the country. The DAV now staffs 71 offices across the United States.
                             All DAV National Service Officers are disabled veterans with compensable service-

Agency History:          Douglas County is a political subdivision of the State of Nevada, operating under
                         provisions of Title 20 of Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS). On November 25, 1861,
                         Douglas County became one of the first nine counties established by the first Nevada
                         Territorial Legislature, with the county seat located in the town of Genoa. The county was
                         retained when the territory became a state on October 31, 1864. Douglas County is
                         named for Stephen A. Douglas, a former United States Senator from Illinois, who opposed
                         Lincoln in the 1860 election for President.

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Mission:                     To prevent and eliminate domestic violence and sexual assault through direct services to
                             victims, education and prevention.
Description of Programs: Direct services include crisis intervention, 24 hour crisis line, advocacy, shelter, recovery
                             programs, legal advocacy, peer counseling, limited transportation, food bank for victims
                             and their children. (775-738-6524)
Target Population:           Victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and their children/parents. Limited
                             services to family members if not the perpetrator.
Agency History:              In 1979 there was a meeting to discuss domestic violence. Attendees included lawyers,
                             law enforcement, social services, mental health, and concerned citizens. The Elko District
                             Attorney, Tom Stringfield, told the attendees he would be issuing temporary restraining
                             orders to protect victims, making Elko County the first to have temporary restraining
                             orders in Nevada. Several volunteered to help organize a group to help the victims and
                             their children, beginning the Women's Center. During the incorporation process, in 1980,
                             the name changed to the Committee Against Domestic Violence. The crisis line was
                             established and CADV continues to use the same telephone number today. An answering
                             service transferred crisis calls to a volunteer. Victims were sheltered in a volunteer's
                             home. In 1985, CADV hired it's first staff person and rented its first office in 1986. Shelter
                             was for three nights in a motel. In 1987, CADV rented a one-bedroom apartment to shelter
                             victims. CADV relocated the office and shelter several times during the next six years. In
                             1992, the CADV determined the demand for services had outgrown available facilities in
                             Elko. They decided to build a facility incorporating the advocacy center and safehouse.
                             CADV completed the transition into Harbor House in March 1998. A 5,700 square foot
                             facility, Harbor House has 8 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. There is a large living area and a
                             quiet room. The safehouse has 24 beds and 4 cribs and was completely furnished by
                             donations from the local community. Harbor House is the only long- term shelter for
                             victims and their children in Northeastern Nevada. CADV shelter victims, day or night, 24
                             hours a day, 7 days a week.

Mission:                     Our mission is to end hunger in our region through direct services, advocacy, outreach
                             and education.
Description of Programs: Our core program is the distribution of 3 million pounds annually of donated and
                             purchased food to our 85 partner agencies, including emergency food pantries, shelters,
                             rehabilitation programs, low-income day-care and senior feeding programs, which supply
                             food directly to their program clients and to the general public. The Food Bank is not an
                             emergency food pantry but instead supplies 40 pantries across northern Nevada with
                             food. We also provide training and equipment to our partner agencies to increase their
                             capacity and efficiency in providing food for those at risk of hunger. Our direct services
                             include the Commodity Supplemental Food Program for low-income seniors, mothers and
                             children, Outreach programs of nutrition classes for children and adults and food stamp
                             workshops for senior citizens, and Child Nutrition programs of Kids Cafe and Backpack
                             Kids for low-income children. The Food Bank of Northern Nevada provides support and
                             technical assistance throughout the state to increase participation in child nutrition
                             programs and places a high priority on anti-hunger advocacy.
Target Population:           Non-profit agencies in northern Nevada and California Sierra that distribute food at no
                             charge to clients and the public. Our direct services target low-income children, seniors
                             and other populations at risk of hunger.
Agency History:              The Food Bank of Northern Nevada was started by Community Services Agency in 1981
                             and incorporated as an independent, non-profit agency in 1983. In 1998, it was certified by

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Description of Programs: Gamblers Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience,
                         strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help
                         others to recover from a gambling problem. (775-356-8070)
Target Population:       Individuals addicted to gambling.
Agency History:          The fellowship of Gamblers Anonymous is the outgrowth of a chance meeting between
                         two men during the month of January in 1957. These men had a truly baffling history of
                         trouble and misery due to an obsession to gamble. They began to meet regularly and as
                         the months passed neither had returned to gambling.They concluded from their
                         discussions that in order to prevent a relapse it was necessary to bring about certain
                         character changes within themselves. In order to accomplish this, they used for a guide
                         certain spiritual principles which had been utilized by thousands of people who were
                         recovering from other compulsive addictions. The word spiritual can be said to describe
                         those characteristics of the human mind that represent the highest and finest qualities
                         such as kindness, generosity, honesty and humility. Also, in order to maintain their own
                         abstinence they felt that it was vitally important that they carry the message of hope to
                         other compulsive gamblers.As a result of favorable publicity by a prominent newspaper
                         columnist and TV commentator, the first group meeting of Gamblers Anonymous was held
                         on Friday, September 13, 1957, in Los Angeles, California. Since that time, the fellowship
                         has grown steadily and groups are flourishing throughout the world.

Description of Programs: Girls and Boys Town, the original Father Flanagan's Boys' Home, is a leader in the
                         treatment and care of abused, abandoned and neglected girls and boys. It provides
                         children with a safe, caring, loving environment where they gain confidence to get better
                         and learn skills to become productive citizens. Programs are located at 19 Sites in 14
                         states and the District of Columbia. For an emergency or crisis situation, call the Girls and
                         Boys Town National Hotline with any problem, anytime at 1-800-448-3000.
Target Population:       Youth who have experienced severe individual and/or family difficulties.
Agency History:          Father Edward J. Flanagan, a Roman Catholic priest and Irish immigrant, knew that boys
                         facing neglect, indifference and ignorance had bleak futures. In their desperation, they
                         often turned to crime. He wanted to get the boys off the streets and away from crime. He
                         borrowed $90 from a friend to open a home for wayward boys in downtown Omaha. On
                         December 12, 1917, he opened Father Flanaganís Boysí Home. Five boys moved in the
                         home in downtown Omaha. Immediately, boys began to come in off the street. Within two
                         months, 25 boys were under Father Flanaganís care. He believed that rehabilitation rather
                         than incarceration; self-government; and alternative education would help boys be
                         successful. Most importantly, he gave the boys generous amounts of love, care, patience
                         and understanding. In 1921, Father Flanagan moved his boys to Overlook Farm west of
                         Omaha. The boys later voted to change the name from Father Flanaganís Boysí Home to
                         Boys Town. In 1936, Boys Town became an incorporated village of the state of Nebraska.
                         Today, Girls and Boys Town National Headquarters, also known as ìHome Campusî, is
                         located at the historic Village of Boys Town. The organization will celebrate its 85th
                         anniversary on December 12, 2002.

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Mission:                 The mission of House Calls is to enhance the safety independance, and dignity of latch
                         key children, handicapped citizens and older Nevadans by providing consistant verification
                         of their health and well being through a computerized monitoring service tailored to
                         individual needs.
Description of Programs: Through a computer-telephone linkage, House Calls makes up to six daily contacts in any
                         language with special needs people whose well-being should be monitored consistently.
                         If a client fails to respond to any of the scheduled calls, our service immediately notifies a
                         pre-determined friend, relative, or neighbor of a potential problem and the need of a
                         personal visit. Daily computer print-outs provide an on-going record of all clients' contacts,
                         responses, and implementation of emergency plans. To prevent a loss of service during
                         power failures, emergency back-up equipment is used.House Calls also provides
                         reminders for people on medication as well as personalized messages for those who are
                         lonely and need reassurance that someone cares about their welfare. Our use of
                         technology enables the program to accomplish these objectives at far less expense than
                         by visits of health care providers. The monthly cost for this service is $30 a month. The
                         service is extended free of charge to people that are not financially able to pay, however,

Target Population:       Kids whose parent(s) have cancer.
Agency History:          Started by Jon Wagner-Holtz whose mother had cancer. He met hundreds of cancer
                         survivors who, he reasoned, "must have children". He started the foundation in 1992 and
                         operated it out of his bedroom. Today, the organization is housed in Laguna Beach, CA. It
                         serves more than 10,000 kids a year through its support groups, hotline, Web site and

Description of Programs: We specialize in full-service rental senior living communities that offer an enriched lifestyle
                         drawn from thoughtful details.
Target Population:       Seniors.
Agency History:          When Andrew Kohlberg, our founder and president, purchased Kiscoís first retirement
                         community in 1990, two thoughts emerged as the driving force: If my parents were to live
                         in a retirement community, what would I want it to be like? And how would I want them to
                         be treated?From these simple concepts, Kiscoís philosophy was shaped. We created our
                         Principles, Values and Beliefs based on integrity, dignity and compassion. This belief
                         system balances the needs of our residents, our employees ñ whom we regard as
                         associates ñ and our business partners. Today our organization is nationwide, but we
                         maintain a personal approach. We continuously reevaluate and refine our methods. We
                         treat people with kindness and respect. We work to create environments that are inviting
                         to residents, their families, and friends. We listen.

                         follows: prevention of cruelty to animals, relief of suffering among animals, reducing the
                         over-breeding of domestic animals - primarily cats and dogs - through public education
                         and sterilization programs, improvide the tragic plight of animals used in biomedical

Description of Programs: The Las Vegas Valley Humane Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving
                         the plight of homeless, abandoned and abused animals in Clark County. We are one of
                         the few organizations that rescue animals which we then foster until we can find loving
                         new homes. Another priority is to educate the public about pet care, over population, and
                         abuse.

AGENCY INFORMATION:

Description of Programs: The primary objective of the MEO program is to improve mission effectiveness by
                         promoting an environment free from personal, social, or institutional barriers that prevent
                         Air Force members from rising to the highest level of responsibility possible based on their
                         individual merit, fitness, and capability. Air Force policy is to conduct its affairs free from
                         unlawful discrimination and sexual harassment. The MEO program seeks to eliminate
                         unlawful discrimination and sexual harassment against military members, family members,
                         and retirees based on race, color, sex, national origin, or religion. The MEO office assists
                         commanders at all levels by conducting equal opportunity programs and teaching human
                         relations education (HRE) classes at every Air Force installation.
