Become a Campaign Partner

We all play a role preventing child abuse and neglect. The Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Awareness Campaign is a multi-year initiative to promote the statewide child abuse and neglect reporting hotline, 844-CO-4-KIDS (844-264-5437). Together we raise awareness about preventing child abuse and neglect, encouraging everyone to report all concerns to the hotline. The Colorado Department of Human Services leads numerous county and community partners in this effort. Get involved to make a difference. Join the campaign, today!

Why Become a Partner

The purpose of this free partnership is to promote the new Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline 844-CO-4-KIDS and raise awareness for child abuse and neglect prevention across the state. No organization is too small, or too big, to discover the unique ways in which they can support Colorado's kids. We need help from 501c3 organizations, government agencies, schools, businesses, and community groups to end child abuse and neglect in Colorado.
