About Child Abuse
Join us in raising awareness for our most precious resource, our children.
In 2014, 20 children in Colorado died from abuse and neglect. Almost 10,000 more Colorado children experienced some form of abuse or neglect. This has to stop.
With your support, we help children recover from the trauma of abuse and neglect. Children deserve a safe place to call home. Because of you, we are able to help children learn how to be kids again.
Additionally, you can be an advocate for children by learning the signs of abuse and reporting it. Remember, you are reporting suspicion of child abuse. Even if you aren’t sure, it’s better to let authorities check it out. You might save a child’s life!
Colorado has one toll-free phone number to report child abuse and neglect 24/7, 365 days a year. Please call the Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline at 1-844-CO-4-KIDS (1-844-264-5437) to report concerns about a child’s safety and well-being. All calls are confidential and will be routed to the county where a child resides. If it is an emergency or you are witnessing a child in a life-threatening situation, call 911 immediately.
