Family Services

The Clark County Department of Family Services (DFS) is the local child welfare agency that works to protect children from abuse and neglect. We do this by partnering with our community to build safe, nurturing and stable families, support family preservation when possible, and provide permanent families for those children who cannot safely return home and to ensure the well-being of children in our care.
