School-Based Services

United Citizens Foundation provides mental and behavioral health services and substance use counseling to the students and their families in the Clark County School District. We are currently located on the campuses of Valley High School, Basic Academy, Brown Jr. High School, Hollingsworth STEAM Academy, and Walter Long STEAM Academy for easy access to those students in need. UCF also operates two off campus locations, one in North Las Vegas and the other in the Southwest part of the valley for all other community members.


Our services can be accessed by students experiencing a crisis or any students undergoing any mental or behavioral stressors such as:  suicidal ideation, behavioral issues, parent/child conflict, bullying, or any negative feeling or emotion.


Our goal is to reach as many students as possible and assist with any issues, stressors, or anxieties and to provide them with positive influence and guidance from a trained and caring adult.

Our objective is to provide mental and behavioral health services to all Clark County School District students, and to one day be available onsite at every CCSD campus. As our organization grows we continue to develop new programs to service the community. UCF is a non-profit organization, 100% of all donations directly support our programs. We strive to make a difference and to serve our community one child at a time.

UCF has been a game changer for our community by providing social-emotional services; they have changed the course for so many of our student's lives. 


UCF has made it possible for our students to overcome unsurmountable obstacles and change the course of their life; they now succeed because of UCF.

The immediate impact that UCF has had on our students can be seen in both their home and school life.  Students are being provided with tools that help them develop healthy problem solving skills and coping strategies that can be applied directly throughout all areas of their lives. 


By receiving mental health services at a crucial age of development, UCF is changing the paths for these children.
