The Carson Valley Children's Center will soon be constructed in North Douglas County. This 5,300-square-foot residence will be named "Austin's House" as a tribute to Austin Kirby. "Austin's House" will provide a safe home environment for up to 10 children from infants to age 17. It will supply the basic living necessities for these children including proper nutrition, hygiene, rest, nurturing, companionship, recreation and education. The facility is designed for short-term placements of Douglas County youth in need of safe housing.
