Differential Response Family Support
The Differential Response Family Support team works together with Clark County Child Protective Services (CPS) to assess families who are in need of community support and assistance. The DR program is designed to help families (all referred through the Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline) break the cycle of CPS involvement without removing children.
The Differential Response team makes home and school visits based on the reports made to the CPS Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline and offers various types of assistance based on the nature of the report.
During these assessment visits, the family may be referred to other services in our local area, but most families benefit from this type of early intervention. Our assessment focuses on the family’s unique strengths and needs.
Our goal is to reduce the risk of future CPS involvement and provide unique family interventions that allow the family to move forward independently and productively and avoid future CPS investigations.
If you suspect child abuse or neglect – call (702)399-0081 or in case of an emergency call 911
