All children deserve to live free from abuse and neglect

Your County Commissioners encourage a supportive and involved community.

The Board of Douglas County Commissioners recently recognized April as Child Abuse Prevention Month. Now your Commissioners are sharing a video message highlighting the importance of partnering to prevent child abuse and neglect.

Greater public awareness and involved communities are among the first steps to supporting children and families. The video reminds us that all children deserve to live in a safe and nurturing environment free from abuse and neglect.

Please watch and share this message with your community — because, working together, we can all help prevent child abuse and neglect.

If you suspect child abuse or neglect, report your concerns immediately by calling the Douglas County child abuse and neglect hotline at 303-663-6270 or 1-844-CO-4-KIDS (1-844-264-5437) to reach someone who can help you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Please review frequently asked questions to be aware of the information needed by child protection professionals when a suspected child abuse and neglect report is submitted.

To learn more about Douglas County’s Strengthening Families approach to preventing child abuse and neglect, and the programs and partnerships that help create strong, resilient families, visit douglas.co.us and search Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect.
