During the Community Foundation of Western Nevada’s public convenings, youth expressed the need for a safe place to spend time away from the streets. Lynette Eddy stepped up to open the Eddy House in response.
The Eddy House works with homeless and at-risk youth to develop the life and job skills necessary for sustainable independence. Eddy House is the central intake and assessment facility in Northern Nevada. The objective of the Eddy House is to end youth homelessness in Reno, Nevada. To accomplish this, we identify homeless, at-risk, and aged-out foster youth through extensive outreach in Downtown Reno. They offer a 24-hour Center, a Community Living Program, a Drop-In Center and more.
The Eddy House is truly a community – a community of young people seeking a safe place supported by a community of inspired adults!
