Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline – 1-844-CO-4-KIDS

Dec. 31, 2014  (Denver) – The Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) will launch a new statewide child abuse and neglect hotline – 1-844-CO-4-KIDS on Jan. 1. Governor Hickenlooper’s Child Welfare Plan “Keeping Kids Safe and Families Healthy” called for the creation of the hotline to promote greater safety for Colorado’s children.

Designed to provide one, easy-to-remember phone number for individuals to use statewide to report suspected child abuse and neglect, the hotline serves as a direct, immediate and efficient route to Colorado’s 64 counties and two tribal nations, which are responsible for accepting and responding to child abuse and neglect inquiries and reports. All callers will be able to speak with a call-taker 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

“Everyone in the community plays a role in the prevention of child abuse and neglect,” said Reggie Bicha, executive director of the CDHS. “The statewide hotline is one more tool to help us keep kids safe and families healthy.”

The new hotline system will capture critical information and ensure that calls across the state are handled quickly and appropriately with the ultimate goal of ensuring that no child is harmed.
