Everyone deserves to be in a safe, healthy environment. But that’s not always the case for some children and even adults, too.

Sometimes people with disabilities, children in troubled homes and older adults, dependent on others for their day-to-day needs, also need our help.

And they get it. Every minute of every day, we have support for both child and adult protection services ready to step in whenever there’s a report of abuse, neglect or exploitation.

Our professionals partner with other agencies like The Collaborative Foster Care Program. It’s collaboration between the foster care programs in Douglas, Arapahoe and Jefferson County to provide care for children who cannot remain safely in their home.

If you need help, or know of someone who does, this is where you’ll find it. You have one of Colorado’s largest counties on your side.
