Sierra Kids Foundation

The Sierra Kids Foundation is a non-profit foundation formed in 2004 to benefit the Early Childhood Autism Program at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR).

As seen in recent local and national television specials, autism is a developmental disability that affects, often severely, a person’s ability to communicate and socially interact with others.  Currently, autism is believed to affect 1 in 59 people.

The current investment to treat a child in the Program full-time is approximately $4,900 per month. Through the fundraiser, the Wild West Shootout, the Sierra Kids Foundation is able to offer scholarship funds so that more children with autism will have the opportunity to participate in, and benefit from the UNR Early Childhood Autism Program.
