Final results from homeless youth count in Washoe County revealed
Staff from the Nevada Youth Empowerment Program revealed Tuesday that they counted 104 homeless youth in Washoe County during an annual "point in time" count.
The Department of Urban Housing and Development (HUD) requires this count of homeless persons ages 18-24.
They counted on "behalf of the City of Reno, who submits the northern Nevada continuum housing grant to HUD," according to event organizer Monic DuPea.
After a 24-hour count, DuPea says that of the 104 surveyed, 14 of them were unsheltered, six sheltered and 84 of them live in nebulous housing conditions, including weekly motels.
A detailed breakdown of the survey results are below:
