The NEST Collaborative
The Nevada COVID-19 Aging Network, Nevada CAN, is a statewide rapid response effort mobilized to address the comprehensive needs of elders and people living with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Led by the Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division, Nevada CAN is a collaboration of many Nevada aging service organizations.
Nevada CAN’s Social Support Action Team provides Volunteer-hosted social support opportunities through The NEST Collaborative (NEST = Nevada Ensures Support Together). These programs aim to reduce social isolation and loneliness, ensuring that Participant needs are met during this time of social distancing. Participants can select from individual and/or group-based options, and services available in English, Spanish, and other languages based on Volunteer availability.
