NV Foster Care

Inspired by Children.  Committed to Families.  Defined by Love.

It’s amazing what a life-changing moment it is for you and a child when you choose to open your heart to a young person in need of a temporary home!

There are approximately 3,000 children in Clark County foster care, from toddlers to teenagers.


Most of the children simply need a place to reside temporarily before they are returned to their biological families.

For those children who can’t return home, adoption provides them with a permanent family to call their own.

Foster and adoptive parents are a valuable resource for children, their biological families and the entire community.

What is foster care?

Foster parenting is about believing and investing in the future of a child and their biological family. Our foster and adoptive program is designed to provide temporary care of children who are unable to reside with their biological families. Children in foster care need strong and supportive caretakers who are willing to work with their biological families and the Department of Family Services to reunify them with their families.

To learn more about Clark County’s foster care program, we invite you to attend one of our foster care Information Sessions.   The information session is designed to provide you with what you need to know to assist you in making an informed decision about becoming a foster parent.  Additionally, upon your request we’ll gladly mail to you an information booklet that provides an overview of the County’s foster care program.

If you are interested in becoming a licensed foster parent, the first step is to attend one of the free information sessions. There are many different options for your convenience.  There is no need to RSVP, just show up!

At this time all Information Sessions are conducted in English. If you will need an interpreter please contact the interpreter line at 702-671-4578.

En este momento todas las sesiones de información se llevan a cabo en inglés. Si necesita un intérprete, por favor llame a la línea de intéprete al 702-671-4578
