Who We Are

Our mission is to provide safe and stable foster and adoptive homes for kids in Washoe County Foster Care. However, we can only achieve our mission through the help and support of people like you.

What We Do

Our purpose is to ensure the safety, permanency and well-being of children who either temporarily or permanently cannot be safely maintained in their own homes. We believe children deserve a loving and caring environment to live in, which is why we take such care to match children with foster and adoptive families who are best able to meet their needs.

Adopt

Help children who would not otherwise have a family life, become members of a family that can give them the love, care, protection and opportunities essential for their healthy personal growth and development. Learn more about adoption and how you can be a hero to a child or teenager.

Foster

There are approximately 800 children in the Washoe County Human Services Agency Foster System and fewer than 400 foster families. You can help fill this void and make a difference in a child’s life. Learn more on how to become a licensed foster parent.

Mentor

Just an hour or more of your time each week can make a huge difference to a foster child. As a mentor, you will become a role model and friend to them. Start making a difference today.

Volunteer

Our volunteers are essential in keeping our many services going. We are happy to discuss with you how your skills and talents can best help the “Have a Heart” program and the children we serve.
