Regional partners come together to provide additional winter shelter

Post Date:12/07/2017 10:08 AM

The City of Reno, Acting in Community Together in Organizing Northern Nevada (ACTIONN) and their regional partners have collaborated to provide a temporary solution to providing additional shelter to the homeless as winter weather has moved into the region.

“We are excited that people of faith and goodwill are stepping up to meet this critical need in our community,” said JD Klippenstein, Executive Director of ACTIONN. Reno Initiative for Shelter and Equality (RISE) and the American Red Cross of Northern Nevada have also assisted in the effort.

The additional temporary overflow homeless shelter will be set up in the parking lot of the Community Assistance Center (CAC) for the next four months. This shelter will have heat, electricity and Sani-Huts and will provide beds for at least 40 people.

While the shelter will go up on Thursday, December 7, 2017 at approximately noon (12 p.m.), clergy and ACTIONN staff won’t be available to speak to the media until 3 p.m. at the CAC. The shelter will open on Friday, December 8, 2017 during the hours of 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., and be staffed by volunteers from local faith-based entities.

The current CAC men’s and women’s shelters provide 208 beds. The family shelter provides 102 beds, and the existing temporary overflow shelter provides an additional 150 beds.
