Our Homies Youth Group is still thriving.
Our goal is to meet 2 times a month and work together on a Community Project or explore something new in Washoe County. If you would like more information, visit us on Facebook!
We are testing out a new way to communicate. If you are between 12-24 and would like updates on the Homies — Text EZIZU36959 To: 313131.
If it works out then we will customize it and build our group this way. Tell your friends.

The Homeless Youth Count concluded on January 30th.
Build Our Center and Nevada Youth Empowerment Project had over 70 Volunteers show up to make the count possible. This doesn’t include the dozens of people and businesses that donated to help these young people get the necessities they need while living in precarious situations. This year we partnered with RISE to run the Free Market on site. Food Bank of Northern Nevada, Northern Nevada Hopes were also on site to provide signups for programs and testing.
We were very lucky this year as the weather was nice which brought out more people than last year. We will post the full results of the Survey as soon as they have been analyzed and returned to us. We counted 75 young people this year between 18-24. This was one of the highest turnouts. We already have ideas of how to improve the count next year and plan to include some more mobile outreach to the areas of town that make transportation complicated. Thank you to all who participated, donated or supported this annual count!

Transgender Day of Remembrance – Reno November 20th
“Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), which occurs annually on 20 November, is a day to memorialize those who have been killed as a result of transphobia, or the hatred or fear of transgender and gender non-conforming people, and acts to bring attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community.”
