Foster Care Project Overview


Reno Sparks Neighborhoods is independent of Washoe County Social Services. These tools are being provided because the need was expressed to make all the publicly available information provided online easier to use.

Did You Know?

 There is a public Child Care “Portal” where you can view any licensed childcare center or home daycare inspections? Additionally, if the center has had a complaint it is right there on the public site! Here is the link! Type a Percent Sign '%' in the search box to view the 200 Childcare centers.

Did You Know?

 About the Foster Parent Nook that is located on the 1st floor of the Social Services Building? The Nook is a place that foster parents can go to when your foster children are in the visit. There are toys for your other children, coffee to keep you going and more! Check it out!

 That if you call the Social Services office before 9am they will not page your worker unless it's a true emergency? This is a designated “quiet time” for staff to work on case notes, court reports and other tasks.

 That the Just in Time Training is available for EVERYBODY!! It has great information, trainings, and links.
