Clark High “Charger's Closet”

With the beginning of the new school year, Grace in the Desert will be collecting items for the students at Clark High School. The “Charger’s Closet” is a program to assist students – many of whom are facing challenges no teen should be facing and are in need of basic necessities for daily living.

  • Clothing – new or gently used teen appropriate apparel, all sizes;
  • Food - Non-perishable food, snack items individually wrapped and with pop-tops;
  • Personal hygiene products – for the young men and women - travel size items – toothpaste, shampoo, hand lotion, deodorant, etc.
  • School supplies – pens, mechanical pencils, notebooks, folders.

Your support is necessary and appreciated to support these students to ensure a successful school year. Donations are collected in the narthex - please label your donation for “CHSCC” or “Clark High School” to ensure they get delivered to the school.

Nevadans for the Common Good

Nevadans for the Common Good is a broad-based coalition of institutions in the Las Vegas area. This coalition has been built deliberately to cross the lines of race, religion, neighborhood and political affiliation. We take strong stands on issues affecting families and communities, but remain politically non-partisan.

Our three basic goals:

  • To build relationships across our community based on trust and a willingness to listen to each other.
  • To equip our members and leadership with skills and practices to get results.
  • To achieve change on concrete issues, as part of our common call to justice.

Refugee Resettlement

Refugee Resettlement Newcomers Party hosted at Grace on Sat, June 4, 2022

In 2017 Grace in the Desert contracted with Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada to provide refugee resettlement assistance. Since then the Refugee Resettlement Committee, working closely with Catholic Charities, has helped resettle more than 40 at risk refugees legally entering the United States. This ministry’s work, among other acts of service, includes:

  • Receiving, holding and delivering donated furniture.
  • Shopping for/delivering required household items and food.
  • Setting up refugee apartments.
  • Meeting refugees at the Airport, accompanying them to their new home, and providing a culturally appropriate first meal.
  • Introducing refugees to the Las Vegas area, including our beautiful park areas and the Strip.
  • Driving refugees to required appointments at Catholic Charities, medical offices, etc.
  • The Committee members visit our refugee families when appropriate.

In the fall of 2022, Grace was privileged to have Epiphany Episcopal Church join with it as a partner in support of this ministry's work.
