Nevadans for the Common Good

Nevadans for the Common Good is an affiliate of the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the nation’s oldest and largest leadership development and organizing network. The IAF bases its work on the idea that a healthy democracy requires the active participation of ordinary people. Nevadans for the Common Good is a broad-based network of local institutions-- faith-based, non-profit, educational, labor, and civic organizations-- that come together to develop leaders, identify shared issues affecting our communities, and take action around these issues. Member institutions pay dues to ensure that NCG has a secure and independent core budget and is primarily accountable to its own constituents.

Nevadans for the Common Good is strictly non-partisan and is multi-issue. Our member institutions work together to develop our local agendas by engaging constituents, both within and across our institutions, in conversations about the issues affecting their families, neighborhoods and communities. By joining with other institutions that have similar goals and concerns, NCG members increase their collective power and work to achieve victories on local and regional issues.

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.
