Jan Evans Direct Assistance Fund

Jan Evans was one of Nevada’s most beloved and accomplished legislatiors. As the volunteer lobbyist for NNADV, Jan Evans worked to pass landmark marriage license fee legislation in 1981 to increase funding for victims of domestic in Nevada. During her seven terms in the assembly, Jan fought to protect funding and also worked tirelessly as a champion for women’s and children’s issues, even during her struggle with cancer. To those of us at NNADV who were lucky enough to know her, Jan was a friend, an advocate, and a mentor.

Jan Evans died from ovarian cancer on April, 24, 2000. To commemorate her compassion, courage, and integrity, NNADV inaugurated the Jan Evans Direct Assistance Fund. The Fund provides direct emergency financial assistance grants of up to $500 to battered women and their children who are fleeing abusive relationships or attempting to reestablish themselves after leaving such situations. No administrative costs are covered by the Jan Evans Fund; 100 percent of all donations go directly to meet the needs of victims.
