Mission Statement

The Eddy hose is a 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization that provides supportive residential housing to young adult males who have "aged out" of the foster care system. The home provides a safe place for these youth to pursue their educational goals and learn valuable life skills. The Eddy House also provides a work experience program through Z-Pie Reno, a local restaurant where the residents learn job skills and can build a resume. All of the profits from Z-Pie Reno are donated to the Eddy House project. Our mission is to provide an organized, consistent and structured lifestyle to disadvantaged and abandonded young adults who have a history of instability and transience. Our vision is to ensure that when a resident "graduates" from the house they will have an educational degree or trade certificate, bank account, life skills, job resume and and job skills. The philosophy at the Eddy House is Education First. Case management and service coordination is also an essential component of our program. Life skills are taught in a group setting as well as on an individual basis. This supportive service is greatly needed in our community. The fastest growing segment of the Reno Sparks homeless population are the youth, which many are "aging out" of the foster care system.

Description

We are unique because we are completely funded through private donations and the profits from Z-Pie. No direct government assistance goes to the Eddy House. Eddy House does not bill Medicaid or any other governement programs for our services. Eddy House relies on community partners and volunteers for life skills classes, mentoring and fundraising.
