~The Homes for the Holidays Home Tour~

~~The 16th annual Homes for the Holidays Home Tour~~

The Homes for the Holidays Home Tour is a one-of-a-kind fundraiser  that provides exclusive tours of some of Reno's finest homes while benefiting women and children who have been affected by substance abuse.

The tour is  December 6th & 7th from 10am to 3:30pm.


Showcased homes open their doors to give you an up close and personal look at stunning architecture and decor. The homes are  professionally decorated for the holidays. Guests from past tours have said they were left mesmerized and stunned after seeing the beautifully decorated homes. 

The Homes for the Holidays Home Tour began 16 years ago and targeted mostly real estate agents in the Reno area. Touring the homes gave agents the advantage of viewing homes that were not listed for sale while giving them an opportunity to see inside different homes and neighborhoods.

Today, as this event has grown, more and more community members enjoy this annual event and look forward to it each holiday season.

The tours are presented by STEP 2. Step 2 is treatment program designed to help children and women suffering from chemical addiction, poverty and domestic violence become self sufficient through treatment services and skills training.

It  is a comprehensive residential and out-patient treatment program that provides women and their children suffering from chemical addiction, poverty and domestic violence the opportunity to rebuild their lives.

Self sufficiency is achieved through integrated treatment services and skills training provided at STEP2 including, housing, childcare, family management, transportation, employment counseling and healthy living.

Comprehensive case management services are also provided and clients are given the opportunity to explore additional community resources to meet the ongoing needs of the family.

Terrie- This sounds like fun.  I gotta tell ya one of my kids just walked by and said, "oh mom did you put up a new picture."  She came closer and looked and said, "ok . . . . that's not you . . . but her hair is almost identical to your!".  I had to laugh.

Hi Terrie,

Small world! We will be in Reno during the Christmas holiday season. Sorry to say this worthwhile event will have concluded before we arrive.

I hope the event is a huge success and beneficial for the great cause.

Tami - That is funny but they are right, it does look like we have similar hair cuts.

Hal~ I hope you enjoy your visit to Reno! You must already have friends and family here so you won't be needing my advice on things to see, places to visit. But if you, just let me know and I will be happy to help you out!
