Our Town Reno

Bryan, Getting Evicted and Trying to Survive Homelessness While Blind

Episode Summary

“The way the homeless are treated in the state [of Nevada], it’s like, we shouldn't even be alive or we should be lepers on an island somewhere. I don't get it. I've never done anything to be treated the way I've been treated [here].” Bryan, a former business owner, has been homeless in Reno since being evicted and becoming blind. He still works despite all the difficulties but bounces around from the overflow to encampments trying to survive the best he can amid an #affordablehousingcrisis. He also keeps trying to get a guide dog but can't finish process. How can he get helped? Reporting by Scott King and Lucia Starbuck.
