- Meet Mike, Mike met our staff while we were outreaching at one of the parks down by the Truckee River last summer. We usually will set up a table and give out snacks, drinks, and hygiene items to homeless/ at-risk youth. Last summer we met hundreds of new youth down at the river who were not aware of the Eddy House, just like Mike. We recently purchased some workbooks for Mike because he just got a job helping remodel houses.Mike
- One of our clients is off to a job interview! Jose sat down with staff on Wednesday and completed 5 job applications! This morning he came in and got some great interview clothes from our community's clothing donations. Since April we have helped over 60 of our youth get jobs. Wish Jose luck!! #endingyouthhomelessness #eddyhouse #biggestlittlecity #cityofrenoJose on the road to employment
