VOA director explains Nevada Cares Campus conditions

1 min read

Pat Cashell—director of the Volunteers of America, which operates the recently opened Nevada Cares Campus—wants to clear up some misconceptions about the massive shelter space.

He said claims that the shelter is a dirty, drug- and alcohol- filled place where people are “warehoused” and workers are uncaring are simply untrue.

He pointed to a recent tour by the Washoe County Public Defender’s office, whose workers, he said, are now happy to send people there to get them out of jail.

“They’re the ones that were like, ‘You should probably call the news and have them come through here and actually see the work you’re doing,’” Cashell said.

Cashell also wants to clear up claims that have been repeated many times recently about the shelter not having space for any additional women, couples or people with pets.
