Please download it today! After you search for it, you will still have to scroll down and look for it. Any feed back will be greatly appreciated on how to make this app better. Thank you!


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!

I am a wife and the mom of 2 girls! We adopted our oldest in 2021. I am honored to be a part of this organization as it holds a near and dear place in my heart! I have been fortunate enough to work for DCFS for over 5 years, watching all sorts of people, big and small, need assistance with all sorts of things. I am forever thankful for NNMP for giving youth and families in our community services needed to succeed! I am so glad to be here, and help spread awareness as well as help people in our community.

I moved to Nevada about 3 and half years ago from Wyoming. My husband Trevor and I have one 5-year-old daughter who keeps us on our toes! In my free time, I enjoy traveling, being outside with my chickens and crafting. As a strong advocate for life, I am so excited to support NNMP in their strategic mission to help children in foster care improve the quality of their situation by helping to meet their everyday needs and beyond.

Cassie Wyllie

Board Member

I grew up in the Elko area, graduating from Spring Creek High School and then attending college at the University of Nevada, Reno. After graduation from UNR with my Bachelor's in Criminal Justice, I spent 8 years in the United States Army as an Apache helicopter pilot. I served two deployments overseas before getting out and coming back to the Elko area. I have been with the Elko Police Department for over 5 years now, serving first as a patrol officer and currently as a Detective. In 2021 I obtained a master's degree in Justice Management from UNR. Most importantly, I am a single mom to two boys. They are my motivation every day to work hard for them and other kiddos in the Elko area. I love being a boy momma.

I am beyond excited to see this nonprofit grow and to be able to help every child that comes into care.
