About Lend A Hand of Boulder City

Founded by caring local residents and organizations over 25 years ago, Lend A Hand has continuously helped Boulder City senior and disabled residents remain independent in their homes with dignity and basic services. Each year our volunteers serve over 400 clients, most of whom are low income. We are donation based; clients may donate if they choose. In addition, the community generously supports Lend A Hand financially and through volunteer hours.


Over 60 volunteers provide transportation services, 30 provide in-home services, and 5 supplement our office staff.
