Caring for children in crisis
Since 2008, 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.
What We Do
We provide a safe haven for children who have been removed from their home situation. This includes providing food, shelter, clothing, transportation to and from school, medical and dental needs, and emotional support.

We are always in need of monetary or goods and services donations.
Donations of food or gift cards help us cover the needs of the kids. Here’s a list of what we could use right now.
