Welcome to the Division of Child and Family Services rural foster care information page. 

Right now there are over 400 children and teens in rural Nevada foster care.

Foster parents provide a safe and loving family life experience for children who are removed from their own home and experiencing crisis.

You can own or rent your home to provide foster care
