FOSTER CARE in CLARK COUNTY
Currently around 3,500 children are living in foster care in Clark County. Most of the children simply need a place to reside temporarily before they are returned to their biological family. For those children who can’t return to their biological family, adoption provides these children with a permanent family to call their own. Foster and adoptive parents, and CASA volunteers are a valuable resource for the children, their biological families, and the entire community.
Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Clark County, Las Vegas, Nevada, believes that all children have the right to safe, healthy, stable homes, free from abuse and neglect. CASA volunteers are trained to advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children in the Court system. Roughly 220 CASA volunteers strive to improve the quality of life for approximately 600 foster children annually. However, more volunteers are needed to speak up for the more than 3,500 Clark County children who are in foster care, to ensure that their best interests are represented. Individuals seeking a volunteer opportunity to help children are encouraged to call the CASA Program at (702) 455-4306 or visit the website at: www.casalasvegas.org.
