(Reno, NV) – Casa de Vida, a private nonprofit corporation providing support services for pregnant and parenting young women in northern Nevada, announced today it will once again become a stand-alone agency effective December 1, 2021.
Over the last 16 months, Eddy House, a nonprofit that works with homeless and at-risk youth, has provided Casa de Vida with management, day-to-day operations, and personnel. During this period, with the assistance from Eddy House, Casa de Vida was able to reconstitute its board of directors and rework its management processes to better align with its mission.
“Casa de Vida will be forever grateful for the assistance, instruction and management provided by Eddy House as we navigated our path back to independence,” said Brigid Pierce, Casa de Vida board president. “We now feel prepared to go back out on our own and provide outstanding support services for pregnant and parenting young women in our region.”
According to Pierce, Eddy House and Casa de Vida will work together where and when possible to ensure those at need in the region are getting a helping hand.
“We have enjoyed having Casa de Vida under the Eddy House continuum,” said Trevor Macaluso, CEO of Eddy House. “Together, we have been able to expand our services to another demographic and we look forward to continuing to collaborate with them when we have the opportunity.”
