Denver County offering Child Abuse Prevention Month mini-grants

Denver Human Services encourages community organizations to join them in Child Abuse Prevention Month by hosting activities and events in April. In 2018, DHS will focus on strengthening families through the promotion of the nationally recognized Five Protective Factors.

To expand its community engagement and educational reach, DHS is offering mini-grants up to $1,500 to community organizations who will support Child Abuse Prevention Month by hosting a community event in April 2018. Events should focus on one or more of the Five Protective Factors and target Denver residents.

Five Protective Factors:

  • Parental Resilience
  • Social Connections
  • Knowledge of Parenting/Child Development
  • Social/Emotional Competence of Children
  • Concrete Supports in Time of Need

Research has shown that when these Protective Factors are well-established in a family, the likelihood of child abuse and neglect diminishes.

The deadline to apply is February 15, 2018. Learn more and apply online.
