The CIC main facility opened its doors in June of 2008 in response to the increasing challenge of creating a safe and positive environment that would foster social interaction and personal development for local children, individuals and families. The campus has been transformed into a multi-dimensional community complex that provides desperately needed services to low-income individuals. We have a charter school on campus for grades 6-12, free child and adult medical clinics, a full service food bank providing packaged foods, fresh produce and meat/milk products and prepared meals, a diaper bank, senior affordable housing, an urban garden, and adult classes which include HSE, ESL, Workforce and Computer Training. Additionally, we have our D to B’s After School program for ages k-12 which provides hot meals, homework tutoring and mentoring, physical activities, community and social outings. Many of these activities and services have resulted from the dire necessities of the community, coupled with a core group of passionate staff, volunteers and committed community and corporate partners working together to make a difference.

Founder & CEO
Rev. Randy Greer graduated from what is now Vanguard University in 1978. He was then drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies and was paid to play baseball for three years in their organization. He then worked for the next ten years as a Youth Pastor in the urban sprawl of Los Angeles. For the past 24 years he has been pastoring Trinity Life Center, implementing strategies to improve the heart and soul of the community in the city of Las Vegas.
With this in mind, the vision for City Impact Center became a reality. What began as an after-school program for inner-city children, a food bank, low income Senior housing and two medical centers has now grown to include a Charter school, an Adult night school in conjunction with the College of Southern Nevada, an Urban Garden, a Job placement center, and a job training center. Other strategic efforts to improve the lives of the people in our community are on the drawing board.
Randy’s vision dove-tailed beautifully with what Elizabeth Gallagher had been dreaming about for years, and none of this could have been possible without her determination to make a difference and the extraordinary abilities of Director Vic Caruso to see these dreams materialize into something significant since 2007.
Randy has been married to the love of his life, Pamela, since 1976, and they now have three adult married daughters and four grandchildren with another one on the way!
