Administration/Boys and Girls Club
The main office for the Children’s Home was located in the largest building on the property. A driveway off of Stewart led to a parking lot here. After the children’s home moved out, the Boys and Girls Club moved in. This was their main building. The playground and basketball courts were directly behind this building.
wow its a miracle any of us are functioning adults at all.some of you guys can b.s.your selves all you want into thinking what a wonderfull place the home was, the truth is most of the cottage parents were abusive drunks and the kids were so messed up most of them needed serious help.My heart aches when i think of all the unloved children. children need to be loved.I remember a small boy being held up to a wall by his throat by mr carter..who went to jail for being a wife beater etc. I wish i could turn back time and make it all better for all of you.. but i cant..all i can do is pray for all of you and hope that you all found someone to love you and you now have a safe warm place to call home. shalom. –Coby
Someone mentioned that NNCH was a correctional facility, and she is absolutely correct in that statement, it was. Kind of a state glorified pre-Elko situation for the guys and pre-boulder for the girls. Some of us did well because our homes were ten times the battlefield than NNCH. The Employees there were themselves not perfect and some of them to had their issues, some should’ve never been placed in the positions they were put into. Some were savage and abusive, and some were just what the doctor ordered, and like wise some of us were savages and others just what the people over us needed. Some of us were throw away kids, and some of us were there because we had issues that were brought to the attention of the state system, and something needed to be done about that. -Steven Doherty
