Foster Care and Adoption

 Providing safe, loving homes for children


Family & Children Services depends on special families to open their hearts and homes to provide temporary and permanent care 

When children are removed from their homes temporarily or permanently as the result of child abuse, neglect or other unsafe conditions, Family & Children Services of Clark County calls on foster and adoptive families to provide the children safe, loving homes.

Foster families care for children temporarily while Family & Children Services works with the children’s birth families to resolve issues. When children must be removed permanently from their homes, adoptive families provide a new, permanent, nurturing home. For more information, please call (937) 327-1749. Click here to see children who are available for adoption.
