The Health Services Department has a program to prevent or remedy neglect or abuse of children unable to protect their own interests, and to preserve, rehabilitate and reunite families as appropriate. Everyone in the community plays a role in the prevention of child abuse and neglect. 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 844-CO-4-KIDS (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. For more information about child protection visit the Office of Children, Youth, and Families.
