In the Clark County Reentry Department, we hold the convictionthat a flourishing community can only exist when every individual has the chance to prosper. Our commitment is reflected in our active involvement in community events tailored for justice-impacted individuals, such as Fair Chance Wednesday and clinics for Record Sealing and Certificate of Qualification for Employment (CQE).
