Ben Castro on RISE and Homelessness in Reno

March 16, 2021

This week on the podcast, Conor talks to Benjamin Castro. Ben is the executive director and founder of RISE, the Reno Initiative for Shelter and Equality. RISE has been an important organization in providing for our unsheltered community for over a decade.

In our interview, Ben doesn't just tell the story of RISE as an organization, but also the stories of some of the people RISE has helped along the way. This is an essential listen if you want to have a better understanding of the issues people living on the street in Reno face, and the efforts being made to help them.

Huge thanks to Ben and RISE for the great work they do, and for coming on the show to talk about it!
