Our Family and Children Services division provides community-based, family-centered services for Boulder County residents. We believe all children deserve to grow up in a safe, loving, and permanent family, and that all families deserve our support.
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 hours a day. If you have concerns about a child’s safety and/or well-being, please call the Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline at 1-844-CO-4-KIDS (1-844-264-5437). 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. Boulder County’s Child Welfare screening line at 303-441-1309 is fully integrated with the state of Colorado’s Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline.
As a community, the role we all play should also include supporting our neighbors, offering assistance to families, and ensuring parents know there is help for them if they need it. Life can be challenging. We all need both hope and help sometimes.
