Clark County Department of Family Services (DFS) does not have an Adopt Only Program. In order to be an eligible adoptive resource, you will need to be licensed as a foster parent for DFS and accept foster care placements within 30 days of licensure. Note: Children placed in your home may not be available for adoption. If you are interested in fostering a child in need, please contact licensing at: (702) 455-0181.
If you are interested in adopting a specific child or sibling group from Clark County, please email DFSadoptions@clarkcountynv.gov. Please note we cannot answer questions about children who are not in the custody of DFS.
If you are only interested in adoption and do not want to foster a child in need, please go to the following website: https://dcfs.nv.gov/Programs/CWS/Adoption/Guide/AdoptionInNV and click on the link, Licensed Private Child Placing Adoption Agencies. This is a list of all the licensed adoption agencies in Nevada. Please contact them directly to discuss your options.
