Noticing Child Abuse or Neglect Isn't Always Easy. Calling Is!
Everyone in the community plays a role in the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Colorado has one toll-free 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 (1-800-264-5437) 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.
