Are you ready?
How you can help
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.
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.
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.
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.
