Protecting Children and Youth in Our Community
Anyone in the community can help prevent child abuse and neglect, especially by reporting incidents and information of concern. All referrals are confidential and Colorado Law protects people from liability if they make a report in good faith. Reports may be made anonymously as well.
The El Paso County Department of Human Services works with doctors, hospitals, law enforcement officials, schools, and others to identify maltreatment, abuse and/or neglect.
The Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline is staffed 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
