Our Reno office open

Monday - Friday from 8am - 4pm

Most services require you to be a resident of Washoe County, however we do offer transient services as well.  All persons will be required to show valid identification (exception is made for persons requesting food for the first time), identifying information for other persons in the household, proof of residency and proof of income eligibility.

We like to think that no request is out of the realm of possibility, but we are limited by the funding that is available at the time of service.  Therefore our main areas of focus are as follows

  • Food assistance - families, individuals (includes special bags for homeless persons)
  • Eye and dental assistance through referral
  • Rent assistance - not for new renters, but to keep persons in their home
  • Utility assistance - available in the winter only
  • Daily bread line - no id or other verifications necessary
  • Gasoline - very limited, primarily for confirmed appointments and only when funds are available.

For more information please call 775.688.4555 and select option 2.
