This effort is an attempt to get an accurate count of homeless youth under the age of 24.
In 2017, the Youth Point In Time Count in Reno, NV reported 73
Past numbers of Young Adults surveyed at the PIT Count since 2012 PIT Count! — 99 in 2016, 72 in 2015, 44 in 2014, 61 in 2013.
We as a community know we need something more, we are working together to build a continnium of care for these young people.
There isn’t a one size fits all solution. We have created a strategy and intervention plan for youth sub populations. It is a manageable problem and as adults and city officials it’s our responsibility to solve it. #youthhomelessnessisanadultproblemtosolve

Jeff Auer, American History and Humanities instructor and LGBTQ Scholar presents “History of LGBTQ Reno.” Researchers of LGBTQ history in the United States have focused predominantly on major cities such as San Francisco and New York City. This focus has led researchers to overlook a rich tradition of LGBTQ communities and individuals in small to mid-sized American cities that date from at least the late nineteenth century and throughout the twentieth century. Reno is one of many examples of a small but thriving LGBTQ community from this time period. As far back as 1882, Reno had an LGBTQ presence, which will be covered through the Great Recession, including the history of the Reno Gay Rodeo and its effects on the world.
