September 2022 Spotlight is on Committed 100 Men Helping Boys DBA:
Rising Stars Behavior Health, a 501 © 3 Non-Profit Organization in Las Vegas, Nevada since 1990 is a recipient of State of Nevada Community Recovery Grant for the next 2 years.
The focus of the grant is to provide free counseling and therapy services that will address the barriers of suicide and suicide thoughts, anxiety, panic attack, trauma, depression and social withdrawals during the pandemic targeting youth, adults and families from diverse low -income demographics in the following zip codes: 89101, 89106, 89031, 89032 and 89115.
“We are honored to receive the grant as it means we now have the ability to expand mental health counseling and therapy services at the same time inflation makes operations more costly” said, Mike Waller, Program Manager and Counselor. “This grant allows us to focus on our clients and services right now rather than on where to procure additional funds.” The Community Recovery Grants are designed to augment operations for those non-profits with pre-existing infrastructure, systems and staff that enable them to help clients quickly and efficiently in the wake of the pandemic disruptions.
Rising Stars Behavior Health has been serving clients since 2016 through the rollout of mental health counseling services. The organization has dealt with challenges, growing needs, disruptions, and loss of revenue during the pandemic. “We look forward to be able to do more for clients we serve thanks to these funds,” said Mike Waller. We’re grateful to be recipients of Community Recovery dollars and look forward to implementing more services in the future”.

June 2022 Spotlight is on UMC Hospital
University Medical Center of Southern Nevada
I am honored and blessed to acknowledge UMC Medical Center for the exemplary work that they do. It has been two years almost to the date that I had to have emergency surgery. I admitted myself into the hospital in the height on the COVID-19 pandemic. I was alone and afraid. I sought emergency treatment for what I believed was a gall bladder attack. After admittance it was discovered that I had life threatening ovarian tumors. I remember being so scared. The hospital was on COVID-19 lockdown. I didn't have my family with me to console me. The surgery was crucial to saving my life, but I was fearful of being alone. I expressed my sentiments to everyone that administered care to me, the nurses, doctors and support staff. I received an outpour of support from everyone...everyone!
I even had doctors and nurses praying with me. The day finally came when the surgical team met with me. After speaking with them I felt assured that I would survive! However, during post-op, I was informed that I was bleeding internally. I asked to borrow a cell phone from one of the attendants, I don't know where I got the strength. I called my mom again to pray for me. I immediately went back into surgery to stop the bleeding. Had it not been for the care that I received from the hospital and its affiliates, I would not be here today. To those special people at UMC, you know who you are, thank you for all that you do!
