Austin's House Of Nevada

Caring for children in crisis

Since 2007, Austin’s House has provided emergency shelter and compassionate care for children in Northern Nevada who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. We provide care to both boys and girls between the ages of birth to 18 until they are either reunited with their family or an appropriate long term placement is made.

As a private, 501(c)3 organization, we depend on the generosity of local citizens and businesses to donate goods, services, and money to cover our operating expenses.

About Us
