Northern Nevada Moses Project is committed to providing support and necessary resources to the most vulnerable of populations, foster children, at- risk children and families in crisis.

The Northern Nevada Moses Project was founded to help children and families in need. While the main focus is on children in foster care, we focus on helping out any and all foster situations, such as fictive kin placements. We work closely and directly with the families we support. Any time a child is removed from their home, regardless of circumstance, they often have a need for clothing, basic necessities, food and a place to rest. Foster parents are often notified just moments before the child is placed in care, any time day or night.  Foster parents try to be prepared for any situation however every situation is unique. They may not have everything they need, or may not have the means to get the things they need right away. Some foster parents may not receive any support from outside agencies, other foster parents will have to wait a good amount of time before receiving reimbursement.  This is where we are wanting to make a difference,  we will be taking private donations of clothing, food, money, furniture, and anything essential in a child's life to make their lives more comfortable. We will be working with local businesses in our community to fill these gaps as well.  It has been said that it takes a village to raise a child, that could not be truer.  All donations go back into our community, benefiting our very own foster families.  These children are worth it!  They need our help and we would like to answer the call!
We accept new and gently used items such as: Clothing, Beds, Mattresses, Dressers, Shoes, Bedding, Toiletries, Essential items, etc.

We take these donations and give them to the Foster community and families in need free of charge.

We store most of the clothing donations and toiletries at our Foster Boutique where the kids can come shop for free to get any items they need.

There's also a direct link through our app. We also have hard copies on hand that you can fill out and turn into your foreman.

Hi, My name is Judy Ellis. I am a 49 year old wife, mom, foster mom, and nana. I have 3 children, 3 grandchildren, and have had the pleasure of being a foster mom to many children throughout the past few years. I have worked for the Lyon County School District Transportation Department for the past 15 years. Throughout my career so far I have been a school bus driver, special needs driver and driver trainer. I love my job and how rewarding it is to work with kids. I truly feel blessed to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of little ones, whether it be the children in my home or the children I work with. In my free time I enjoy spending time and making memories with all of my children and grandchildren. I also enjoy spending time with friends, shopping, watching movies, cooking and baking.
