The Kids Kottages are protective shelters where police or social workers bring children after they have been removed from their families. They are temporary homes operated 24 hours a day by Adams and Associates, Inc., under a contract with Washoe County Department of Social Services. They house up to 82 children, both boys and girls who range in age from one day old up to eighteen years.
Most children at Kids Kottage are there because their families are suspected of severe abuse or neglect. However, some children are placed because no one else is available to care for them during parental incarceration or hospitalization.
