“Many [LGBT seniors] come from before the time same-sex couples could build families as we can today, and many of our seniors have lost their spouse. They’re widows, and the Center is their primary social engagement,” says LGBTQ Center of Southern Nevada executive director John Waldron.
Clark County Commission Chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick and community partners have launched a pilot called “Delivering with Dignity “ to bring high-quality meals directly to the most vulnerable families in the Las Vegas Valley, keeping them and the community safe by reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

“Delivery With Dignity was created to provide meals to seniors and other vulnerable residents who cannot leave their homes in the middle of this pandemic. We hope to expand the service with support from the community, philanthropists and government grants. Simultaneously, it is also important to us to provide employment to as many of the restaurant workers in the valley who are healthy yet without work.”
