The programs which CLSN offers can be broken down into five categories: Nutrition, Transportation, Health, Education & Fitness. These targeted areas of services allow us to identify community partners who are the experts in their field. These services are designed to enhance the quality of life of our residents, provide dignity and a sense of stability. These programs are what set CLSN apart from other affordable housing programs in our community.”
We currently partner with Three Square to provide two major food programs monthly- Golden Groceries and Food Rescue. These programs are offered to our residents free of charge and for many of these seniors, might be the only food they receive for the month because they live on a fixed income. We also work with Helping Hands of the Vegas Valley to provide a monthly food distribution for residents 60+.
Partnering with RTC, we provide free 24-hour bus passes. This is offered two times per week and is utilized by hundreds of residents across six of our eight senior affordable housing sites. In addition, we work with Southern Nevada Transit Coalition and The Jewish Federation to provide weekly shopping loop buses that take our residents to major shopping centers. For our residents who have mobility issues and/or are without a vehicle, these programs allow them to get out and pick up medications, shop for essentials, etc.
In partnership with University of Nevada Cooperative Extension, CLSN is able to offer our residents a comprehensive list of classes including cooking demonstrations, healthy living tips and tricks, monthly newsletters with healthy options and more. Our partner Dispatch Health offers visits directly to the home to provide basic medical care, follow up visits, prescription orders and more. This helps protect our residents from potential COVID exposure and also allows them to be seen in the comfort of their home.
At CLSN, we promote and offer a wide array of educational resources to enhance the quality of life for every resident. From the art programs with our partner SPRATS, which offers virtual art classes and take-home art kits to our lunch and learns with our insurance partners like Tyler Insurance Group and Anthem and even the incredible support from our partner Nevada Senior Services- these are great ways to connect our residents with the most up to date information which can improve their day to day lives. We actively seek out new partners who offer services and important information for the senior community.
CLSN has been offering monthly fitness classes with our partner, LosJudah Fitness. These classes include chair yoga, Zumba, line dancing, strength & conditioning and when the weather is warmer, water aerobics. These are not only important for residents’ physical health, but their mental health too.
