Share at a Glance
Share provides services to individuals and families and prohibits discrimination in all its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, economic status, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation and marital or family status.
At Share, we provide a spectrum of services—from the Outreach team on the streets to emergency shelters and free nutritious meals, to the Backpack program feeding hungry children and subsidized housing for low-income individuals and families, to a matched savings program and permanent housing, and so much more.
Volunteers are the heart of our organization.
Through the caring and compassionate spirit of our volunteers, Share provides assistance to more than 10,000 people in Clark County each year. In 2018, 28,302 hours were provided by 2,884 volunteers dedicated to supporting Share’s mission. We could not do all of what we do without our Volunteer Team – this team is a part of who we are and what we do.
Share was founded in 1979 by a group of volunteers whose compassion inspired them to take action to create this organization and help those in need in Clark County. Over the years, Share’s programs have expanded to meet the needs of a growing community. As our services have increased, so has our need for assistance from volunteers like you!
