Programs & Services

In January 2020, Eddy House moved into our new 16,000+ square foot facility to embark on 24-hour services unlike any regarding youth homelessness in Northern Nevada.  This new project has enabled us to get young people off the streets, giving them an opportunity to get on their feet and thrive.  Many of the young people come to us due to aging out of foster care, some have had tragic incidents, and then there are those that have been lost on their own for years.  Eddy House has been able to add counseling, workforce development, and a wide array of wrap-around and supportive services.

  • Outreach: “Meet them where they are at” is a motto that we use throughout our organization, but in outreach this is our core philosophy. Our outreach team goes throughout our community to meet potential clients and others experiencing homelessness in order to ensure that our community is aware of our services and to distribute essential items such as water, blankets, and food.
  • Drop-In Center & Emergency Shelter: Eddy House’s Drop-In Center is a safe place where young people can begin to form bonds with caring staff while gaining access to essential resources for their overall well-being. The primary goal of the program is to get homeless youth into safe and permanent housing. Services include basic necessities such as safe overnight shelter, showers, laundry, food, clothing, personal care items, lockers, and computers.
  • Community Living Program: Once the immediate needs of our clients are met through our Drop-In Center and Emergency Shelter, youths are invited to apply to our residential programs. Starting with our 6-month Community Living program, residents are provided a stable, sober living environment where they have access to a kitchen, food storage, individual bed spaces with storage, and on-site laundry services. During this period, CL residents establish bank accounts, health insurance, career or educational goals, and other life plans. 
  • Transitional Living Program: Once clients have graduated from our CL program, they are invited to apply to join our Transitional Living program, which is an off-campus independent, low-cost housing.  This final step in our programs allows clients to save money, increase their independence, and improve their community relationships.
