The NEST Collaborative (NEST = Nevada Ensures Support Together) fosters relationships and community by harnessing the power of a statewide coalition to provide virtual, volunteer-hosted social support and technology assistance with a special focus on connecting and engaging older adults, veterans, and adults living with disabilities.
The NEST Collaborative launched on April 1st, 2020 with Nevada CAN (COVID-19 Aging Network) as the program initiative of their Social Support Action Team. The program first served homebound elders across Nevada through virtual, volunteer-hosted, social support and assistance meeting essential needs during COVID. Since then, we have expanded to support not only elders, but also adults living with disabilities and veterans. We promote friendly conversation amongst our Volunteers and Participants as an opportunity for mutual support and connection to local resources when essential needs are not met.
