Contemporary homelessness management policies are based on a combination of care and control practices that create complex policy landscapes. In that line, local governments may actively fund and support homeless shelters and voluntary organizations while sweeping informal encampments and developing anti-homeless ordinances and infrastructure. This thesis articulates this theorization of care and control dynamics in contemporary homelessness management to study the recent development of the Nevada Cares Campus in Reno, Nevada. Drawing from the accounts of the experiences of those inhabiting the campus, the newly open facility is studied first as a shelter space with its own care and control dynamics, and second as a tool for the spatial organization of homelessness in the city of Reno.
