Clark County Foster Care Needs You!  

When you foster a child, you’re creating a new world!  

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

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. Foster parenting is about believing and investing in the future of a child and their biological family. Won’t you consider making the choice to open your heart and your home to a child in need?  It will change your life and the life of a child!

To learn more about Clark County’s foster care program, we invite you to attend one of our foster care information sessions.  The free information sessions are held at the following Department of Family Services locations:  

  • The first and third Tuesday of every month from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at 701 N. Pecos Rd.; and
  • The second and fourth Saturday of every month from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at 121 S. Martin Luther King Blvd.  

The foster care 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. 

For more information, you can log on at www.clarkcountyfostercare.org, send us an e-mail or call us at (702) 455-0181.  You can also check us out on YouTube, where you should type in the key words “Clark County Foster Care.”
