Nevada Children's Center (NCC), a 501 c 3 (Federal Tax ID: 88-0361315), was established over two decades ago to address the mental health needs of children in Southern Nevada. NCC accepts clients from the ages of 3 to 17 years old that exhibit and/or have been diagnosed with a mental health disorder and/or behavioral disorder.
To empower young victims of abuse, neglect, and mental afflictions by providing rehabilitative mental health interventions with a variety of community-based partners.
We believe that every child deserves a hero. Our objective is to give at-risk children the tools and guidance they need to advocate for themselves while coping with challenging circumstances. The goal is to develop higher self-esteem, form strong relationships, and learn to become productive members of their families, schools, and society.
