‚ÄčThe Clark County Department of Family Services is participating in a Title IV-E Federal Waiver which has allowed us to provide our DFS families with services that were not previously available to them.  In July of 2015 we began providing in home "safety services" to families which enable them to keep their children safely at home while they work on increasing their parental protective capacities enough to mitigate circumstances that would cause their children to be deemed unsafe.

Through the support of our safety managers provided by various community agencies we have been able to keep more than 1000 children safely at home in our first two years. Our goal is to avoid the trauma of removal from the family by serving more children and families at home and reduce the number of children in foster care.
