A Family For Every Child

Our mission is to provide safe and stable foster and adoptive homes for children and teens in Washoe County Foster Care. These kids have been through so much, and deserve to live in a loving and caring environment.

Matching kids with the perfect family that suits their needs is our ultimate goal; however, achieving our goal cannot be done without the support of amazing people like you!


Help children become members of a family that can give them the love, care, protection and opportunities essential for their healthy personal growth and development.
