Let me start by saying I was blown away by the work Eddy House does from the moment I learned about their incredible mission. There are nearly 53,000 homeless youth across the United States and more than 3,500 in Reno. The mission at Eddy House is to end youth homelessness in Reno, Nevada.
In 2017, Eddy House helped 769 homeless youth. Michele Gher, Executive Director at Eddy House, says the rising homeless youth crisis is greatly attributed to the housing shortage in northern Nevada.Their central intake and assessment facility is located in downtown Reno and was founded in 2011 by Lynette Eddy.
