Aids & Resources for Kids

Project A.R.K. (Aids and Resources for Kids) provides professional services to families of all children, infancy through 23 years of age, diagnosed with life-threatening and critical illnesses and living in Southern Nevada. This division of NVCCF houses the financial, educational, psychological, and emotional support services for critically ill children and their families.


NVCCF works to improve the quality of life for critically ill children who fight a daily battle against disease. All programs and services are provided at NO COST to diagnosed children and their families living in Southern Nevada.

If your child is diagnosed with a life-threatening or critical illness and they, or family members, are experiencing any of these issues, please contact NVCCF to learn more:

  • Fear
  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Irritability
  • Physical or Emotional Overreactions
  • Memory Loss
  • Inability to Concentrate
  • Behavior Changes
  • Poor or Declining School Grades
  • Depression


Being diagnosed with a life-threatening or chronic illness is a traumatic experience for a child as well as for parents and siblings. Treatments to fight cancer, HIV/AIDS, sickle cell, renal, blood, and immunologic diseases may contribute to psychological and physical challenges for children who fight a daily battle against disease as well as for survivors of disease and their family members.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

There are a number of volunteer opportunities for many events and programs.

Donations go toward improving the lives of those touched by cancer.
