Women's Welfare in Washoe: A Community Conversation

Updated: Jun 26

For April's Community Conversation Speaker Series, we explore the intersectionality of domestic abuse, housing, and homelessness for women and children in our community and meet experts trying to make a difference. Change requires solutions as complex and interconnected as the problems they aim to address.


Join us in a conversation with experts on the front lines of homelessness in our community. Many issues like poverty and domestic violence interconnect with houselessness. Discover common misconceptions organizations face in the Truckee Meadows while working on these issues. You'll also learn the innovative ways organizations address problems and how you can support change in your community.

Explore how the intersectionality of domestic abuse, housing, and homelessness requires solutions as complex and interconnected as the problems these organizations aim to address.
