An update from CDHS Executive Director Michelle Barnes
Anyone witnessing a child in a life-threatening situation should call 911 immediately.
You can help.
Everyone plays a role in preventing child abuse and neglect. Caseworkers and social workers are helping strengthen families and protect children, but they need your help.
To end child abuse and neglect all Coloradans need to educate themselves and be willing to get involved to help a parent or a child.
Even when kids experience child abuse or neglect, they can overcome and reach their full potential with help from the community.
Creating a brighter future for a child starts with a phone call for help or the click of a button to get involved.
