Our Mission

The Nevada Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS), together in genuine partnership with families, communities and other governmental agencies, provides support and services to assist Nevada's children and families in reaching their full human potential.  DCFS recognizes that Nevada's families are our future and children, youth and families thrive when they:

  • Live in safe, permanent settings

  • Experience a sense of sustainable emotional and physical well being

  • Receive support to consistently make positive choices for family and the common good 

Division of Child and Family Services building strong communities through strengthening families.

Child welfare agencies in Nevada believe families are the primary providers for childrenís needs. The safety and well-being of children is dependent upon the safety and well-being of all family members. Children, youth and families are best served when staff actively listens to them and invite participation in decision-making. We support full implementation of family centered practice by engaging families in child and family teams and offering individualized services to build upon strengths and meet the identified needs of the family.
