Officers with the LVMPD DTAC Homeless Evaluation Liaison Program (HELP) will be announcing the beginning of a community event designed to bring awareness to responsible giving. Lieutenant Harry Fagel will discuss the project events which will take place once a month at pre-designated locations with the goal of providing a venue for people who wish to give directly to the homeless. Most importantly everyone will help prevent crime and the litter which often results from unorganized donating.
To contact Lt. Fagel, please call the downtown area command: (702) 828-4348
If you are dealing with homeless people or anyone who needs help, Clark County Social Services will offer coordinated intake, which is a homeless housing wait-list, and also out-of-state transportation, for those who have been here less than 6 months. This out-of-state transportation includes one-time rent assistance, and a one-way Greyhound bus ticket, as long as the person has a verifiable place to live at the other end.
