Family Engagement Policy

In efforts to streamline expectations between families, caseworkers, and stakeholders and continued efforts to engage families, Nevada the Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) has reviewed and updated statewide policies for caseworker contact with children, parents, and caregivers and family visitation. Additionally, Nevada’s Child Welfare Agencies have updated and revised their internal policies to align with the statewide policies, and provide ADA accessibility. These can be located below for parents, families and foster parents to easily review. If you or someone you know needs translation assistance to review the policies contact the DCFS Family Programs Office at 775-684-4400 for further support.
