It Takes More Than a Village… It Takes a Community.
Thank you for your interest in helping the Youth served by Eddy House. We truly appreciate that you, or your group, want to make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable young people in our community. As our needs are diverse and tend to change quite frequently, we recently created a Wishlist on Amazon.com as a simple way to display our needs. As we move forward in helping our youth, we discover what our children need and add them to our Wishlist. Items can be purchased directly from Amazon.com, purchased locally and delivered to us at the Eddy House Resource Center, or you may choose to purchase an Amazon.com gift card.
Below are some examples of things Eddy House needs regularly. Whether you choose to make a one-time donation, monthly donation, or quarterly donation we are so grateful for your support! Many of the items on our list can be set up as, “Subscribe and Save” items and can be automatically shipped to us on a monthly basis.
If you would like to access our Wishlist, please follow these steps:
- Go to Amazon.com and search through “Accounts & Lists.”
- Type in “Eddy House.
- Find, “Eddy House Needs for Homeless and At-risk Youth.”(Or, click this link!)
- Questions? Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 775-384-1129

Nevada Womens Basketball team made a home-cooked meal and served to our youth at our Friday Family Meeting. GO PACK!
- Snacks! Sponsor all or part of the monthly snacks at the Eddy House. On a monthly basis, we need approximately 5,000 snacks. Your group can choose a month and amount to sponsor once, or every month!
- Care and Comfort! We offer showers for youth who are homeless at our walk-in center. We need toiletries such as soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, razors, toothpaste, toothbrush etc. Our current needs are just a click away on our Wishlist! Choose what you want and have the items dropped and shipped to us. We are finally outfitting our bathrooms! For health and safety reasons, we do have restrictions on what we can use. Please check out our Wishlist, or call us with any questions you may have.
- Meals! Sponsor a monthly meal and activity for the Eddy House
Contributions as a Large Group
In addition to the items we’ve suggested for individuals and small groups, we would love for your large group to consider the following additional options:
- Underwrite the snacks and/or activities for a month in our recreation space and/or the kitchen in the main Eddy House. This would be approximately 5,000 snacks each month. Snacks can be purchased or collected as donations at your location. We love healthy snacks. We will recognize your group for the month of your choosing, but please let us know when you are selecting a month so we don’t double book! You may also want to consider seasonal items such as ice cream in the summer or warm soups in the winter.
Underwrite a special project. We always have special projects that need champions like you! We have projects with budgets that range from $3,000 – $8,000. Many of these projects are currently on the Wishlist! Some of our most pressing needs include upgrades in our Tech Center, games and activities . If your group would like to be a champion of a special project, please contact us today so we can work with you to develop a plan and provide you with all of the support you might need.
There are so many ways to show the youth served by Eddy House that the community truly cares about them. If you do not see something above that fits the needs of you or your group, please contact us so we can help. The best way to get into contact with Eddy House is to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 775-384-1129.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT AND CONSIDERATION.
