Austin’s House recently received a donation of $50,000 from Patty Clark, founder of the Austin Kirby Foundation. Patty and her colleagues at Century 21 Clark Properties work vigorously the entire year to raise donations for Austin’s House with fundraisers and direct requests. The Austin Kirby Foundation is the largest single donor for Austin’s House. The non-profit emergency shelter home is named in honor of Patty’s grandson, Austin Kirby.

“We can’t express our gratitude to Patty Clark with simple words,” said Conrad Buedel, current President of the Austin’s House Board of Directors. “The donations from Patty and the Austin Kirby Foundation have allowed Austin’s House to be successful from day one. Patty has supported our cause in so many ways that we can never thank her enough.”

The generosity of our community built Austin’s House and continues to sustain it through donations of cash, food, clothing and other basic necessities. Austin’s House is the only emergency children’s shelter in rural Northern Nevada. The children are placed at Austin’s House after being removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. These children have no place else to go. Austin’s House provides the basic living necessities including proper nutrition, hygiene, rest, nurturing, recreation, companionship, education, and life skills training. Austin’s House has cared for more than 300 children since opening in September 2007.
