The Kids to Seniors Korner (KSK) program is a private and public collaborative which involves several local partners, including the Reno Police Department, the Washoe County Sheriff's Office, Health District, Social Services and Senior Services. The KSK mission is to provide a combination of services to at-risk populations, such as low-income children, families and seniors citizens.
KSK program social workers and outreach specialists conduct bi-weekly Knock 'n' Talks with local law enforcement officers and medical workers in order to target specific neighborhoods and help residents who may be in need of services. Our mobile clinic served 4,355 children, families and seniors in Washoe County in 2015, including providing 3,311 primary care referrals and 2,910 immunizations.

Kids to Seniors Korner is proud to be a community partner with the Washoe County Sheriff's Wandering Project program.

We understand that caring for a person with Alzheimer’s/Dementia or a child with cognitive impairments can present unique challenges. We want to help you keep the person you care for safe and give you greater peace of mind. You can pick up your free tote at Crossroads located at 500 E. Fourth Street Reno, NV 89512.
