About James Seastrand Helping Hands of North Las Vegas

James Seastrand Helping Hands was established in 1998 after the passing of the former mayor James Seastrand.

Escorted transportation is offered to senior citizens age 60 and older who reside in North Las Vegas. Volunteers transport clients to medical appointments and other necessary errands and remain with the client during the excursion. Clients must first be assessed for transportation. There is no charge for this service, but clients are asked to donate an amount affordable to them. No one is denied service because of inability to contribute.

Simple home maintenance and repairs, scheduled smoke detector and filter changes, and safety checks are just a few of the services provided.

Senior citizens age 60 and older who own a home or mobile home and live in the following zip codes are eligible for these services: 89002, 89015, 89030, 89031, 89032, 89081, 89084, 89086, 89101, 89102, 89103, 89104, 89106, 89107, 89108, 89109, 89110, 89114, 89115, 89117, 89120, 89121, 89122, 89128, 89129, 89130, 89131, 89134, 89138, 89143, 89144, 89145, 89146, 89147, 89149, 89156, 89157, and 89169.

Clients must be assessed and sign a release of liability before any repairs can begin. During the assessment, they will be asked to make a one-time contribution to the organization. All supplies needed for the repair will be purchased by the organization. Clients are eligible for service once every fiscal year.

Businesses throughout Las Vegas donate items such as toilet paper, facial tissue, napkins, paper towels, and personal care items. These products are sorted and put into bags that are distributed to seniors monthly. Due to the inconsistency of donations, the contents may vary from month to month.

Senior citizens age 60 and over who reside in Clark County are eligible to pick up one bag each month. There is no charge for this service, but contributions are accepted. It is sometimes necessary to close the office to transport clients. Please call before you come.

The objective of this program is to allow senior citizens to use their limited funds for other items such as utilities, food, and prescriptions.

James Seastrand Helping Hands of North Las Vegas is a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The federal tax identification number is 88-0395530.
