OUR Place is a low-barrier emergency shelter, specifically designed to provide women and families dealing with homelessness, a warm, safe, and home-like environment to stay in.
RISE and Washoe County Human Services Agency offer guests at OUR Place, wrap-around services, while they face daunting transitions to aid in ending thier homelessness.
Our model is one of collaboration with peer-led services. Staff, peers and volunteers, offer guests a supportive network, helping bring healing and unity to achieve hope.
OUR Place is compassion driven, and outcome-based with a focus on long-term housing solutions that fit the needs of individuals and families. We recognize that diversity makes us stronger and embrace human uniqueness. Rather than seeking to build a program that pushes people to adapt, OUR Place collaborates to build responsive interventions.
