Human Services

Who are we?

The Department of Human Services provides assistance to many residences including child protection and support, foster/kinship care, maternity and women, infant and child nutrition.

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 (1-844-264-5437) 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.
