  • Mission:
  • Our mission is “to act as a catalyst for change and a center for resources to help people help themselves,” as together, we build healthy families and communities.

  • History:
  • CCI was founded in 1991 to address the lack of human services in Storey and western Lyon counties. Over the years, the organization has evolved to provide positive youth development programs, early childhood education services, mental health services, employment assistance programs, and address food insecurity. CCI also serves northwestern Nevada area with a myriad of prevention programs for youth and families and four statewide initiatives to end rural poverty. Governed by a board of directors, Community Chest has a staff of 21 full and part-time employees, 20 youth employees, and 20-plus regular volunteers. Our annual operating budget is $1.3 million. Recent accomplishments of magnitude include the following. After raising more than $1,300,000, we opened Phase I of the Storey County Youth and Community Resource Center in 2012. Maintenance of the building is a partnership between Community Chest, Inc. and Storey County. After becoming the stewards of the Storey County Public Library in 2012, we reopened the Storey County Community Library part time in 2013 and raised over $50,000 to hire a librarian and fully restore library services in Storey County in 2014. Our request to the Lawrence Foundation focuses on support for stabilizing the library.
