Ever wondered what happens after you call?

July 20, 2017



Have you ever wondered what happens when someone makes a call to report a concern about possible child abuse or neglect? 

In this video, Michelle, Child and Adult Protection Services Intake Administrator with the Arapahoe County Department of Human Services, provides a high-level overview of the process that takes place. She explains the concept of RED (Review, Evaluate and Direct) Teams and how child welfare professionals across Colorado may use them to evaluate all incoming reports of suspected abuse or neglect and determine the best course of action to take in each case.

We all play a role in preventing child abuse and neglect. If you see the signs, call 844-CO-4-KIDS (844-264-5437). Your confidential, toll free call can protect a child & help a family.
