Community resources

The Sanford Center for Aging has partnered with Nevada 211 to connect elders in the community to vital services like food, medication, tele-health, one-on-one check-ins calls and more. If you are interested and able to volunteer OR if you or an elder you know wanted to request services, visit the Nevada 211 website.

If you have been impacted by school or business closures, United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra has compiled a  comprehensive list  of resources for our community. If you need help with food, shelter, internet access, healthcare, unemployment, mental health or utilities, this is a great place to start.  

Eddy house, a local organization that promote self-sufficiency and empowerment to homeless, runaway, foster, and at-risk youth ages 12-24 by providing safety, basic needs, and access to community resources in Northern Nevada, has put together a list of  local restaurants helping to feed our community   and ways you can help. We can get through this together! 

Career services  

All students and alumni are reminded they can access  Handshake , the University's online platform to connect students and alumni to internships, jobs and new career opportunities.
