Consolidated Agencies of Human Services is starting its 34th year of service to the community. CAHS is a founder of many programs and remains active in community leadership and service delivery systems. We maintain a strong economic and community presence. For 34 years CAHS has worked for the citizens of Mineral County. Over the years the organization has responded with innovative programming and improved management practices to meet community needs.

CAHS/Hawthorne Family Resource Center staff and logistical support remains at (4) four people to maintain the level and quality of service to our service area. Our programs are continually being revised and increased to address the need in the community. Basic assistance has, for the most part, been maintained. New programs have been established by assessing community needs.

CAHS is unique in the State of Nevada: our agency acts as a county welfare office. Our employees are not county employees and are paid well below county scale. In the private sector, profit is measured by return on dollar investment. Not only do we provide a return on your dollar investment we provide a priceless return in: services rendered, people assisted and healthier communities.

In addition to providing family and emergency services to those who qualify, CAHS and The Family Resource Centers try to provide a comfortable and secure office environment and a willing ear to help reduce the emotional stresses associated with family problems and the temporary need for services.

CAHS is unique in the State of Nevada.
