Adoption Program


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.
