LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The LGBTQ+ Community Center of Southern Nevada (The Center) announces the release of its new Center Advocacy Network 24/7 Victim Hotline, a resource for all victims of crime.

Staffed with an army of CAN trained and certified volunteer advocates, the hotline assists victims of crime in obtaining resources and services.

As the social impact of COVID-19 isolation spreads, our communities will continue to see an increase in crime–everything from domestic violence, assault, elder abuse or neglect, identity theft, to sexual assault and burglary.

The Center’s hotline provides a way for victims of crime to connect to a volunteer advocate for assistance in locating the right services.

In addition, The Center has been participating in the Delivering with Dignity meal delivery service.

Over 10,500 meals have been delivered to at-risk individuals and families that lack the funds and resources to obtain basic nutrition. Meals are prepared daily at The Center by Jolt Coffee Co. who is one of the participating restaurants in the Delivering with Dignity program.

The hotline number for Las Vegas is 702-745-4600.
