Dear Residents and Visitors:
We are pleased to publish this third edition of the Las Vegas Disability Pocket Guide A Directory of Resources for Disabled Residents & Visitors.
Las Vegas offers many opportunities and resources for the disability community that are not always easy to locate. Our aim in publishing this guide is to compile a single source of information covering a full spectrum of services and products designed to meet the needs of the growing disability community. To that end, it is our goal to address not only the most basic needs of any individual able-bodied or disabled to live an independent and productive life, but also to offer a variety of opportunities that broaden their horizons and enrich life beyond the daily routine.
This guide is the culmination of many hours of hard work on the part of Southern Nevada Center for Independent Living volunteers and staff, many of whom have disabilities themselves and, as a result, offered invaluable input regarding the content and format. While we have made every effort possible to present a comprehensive directory, we may have overlooked some important resources in the community; for that we apologize and welcome your input for specific additions in future editions. We also welcome and encourage your general feedback on the usefulness of the Pocket Guide. We are confident that, together, we can improve the quality of life in southern Nevada for our disabled citizens and visitors.
Mary Evilsizer, Executive Director
Southern Nevada Center for Independent Living
