Community Foundation of Northern Nevada Logo is Live!

Our community's first comprehensive go-to resource guide for youth ages 12 to 24 is live.

ryn.comGo to , type in a search term ( pregnant, hungry, job or any need you know youth on the streets will find important) and see what pops up. You will find Service Provider names, days and hours of operation, details about services, bus routes.  Putting all this vital information in one searchable, up-to-date and up-datable place is an unparalleled tool for helping youth in Washoe County. The Community Foundation of Western Nevada took on the project when it was apparent at the community-wide convenings that services providers did not have a comprehensive list of referrals and nobody understood the scope of services provided in our community. By cataloging and categorizing we will be able to tell  by popular search terms that don't lead to providers, where the critical gaps in services are and work to remedy. Social workers, cops on the street, school counselors will now all be able to quickly find services for homeless youth in need. Click on the link or logo above and add to your phone. The homeless youth problem in Washoe County is real and serious. You can help by referring youth to the proper place for assistance.  When you run into a situation with a homeless, runaway, or aging-out-of Foster Care Youth - YOU have a go-to site.
