Today on the ThisisReno Radio Show, Ryan Jerz and I talk with Lynette Eddy of The Eddy House. We discuss the difficult and not-often-discussed issue of youth homelessness in the Reno area. Questions that we answer:
- How many reported homeless youth are there in Reno?
- What challenges are faced by homeless youth?
- What services does The Eddy House provide?
- What’s next for The Eddy House?
- What can you do to help?
