Foster Care

"I Am…Silent No More" Foster Care and Adoption Campaign  

About Foster Care in Clark County

On any given day, there are more than 3,000 children in Clark County who cannot live safely at home, through no fault of their own.  

Foster and adoptive parents play an important role in giving these children loving and safe home and helping them to reach their goals and improve their quality of life.  

About the "I AM… Silent No More" Foster Care and Adoption Campaign

I AM...Silent No More aims to raise the profile of foster care and adoption in Clark County.  

The campaign’s key project activities include a series of public events designed to produce and encourage the following:  

  • Awareness - Highlight the achievements of those that have been adopted or touched by adoption and the foster care  
  • Advocacy - Advocate for the children that are in the system as well as homeless youth and to provide an outlet for their voices to be heard
  • Advancement - Improve the options by increasing the number of foster and adoptive resources in Clark County
