To promote the safety, well-being and permanency of children and youth while preserving and strengthening families.
The Intake Section responds to a variety of concerns about children and their families. These concerns include:
- Alleged child abuse (sexual, physical, emotional) or neglect
- Parents who - for reasons of health, mental health, intellectual capacity or poverty - are unable to care for their children
- Children or youth who may be a danger to themselves or others
If needed, an intake investigation / assessment is conducted. Our main focus is to identify and address any safety issues while working cooperatively with families to provide needed services.
Everyone in the community plays a role in the prevention of child abuse and neglect. If you are calling about a family that resides in Adams County, please call 720.523.2000. If you are unsure as to the county in which the family resides, you may call that number OR Colorado’s toll-free hotline at 1.844.CO4.KIDS (1.844.264.5437). If it is an emergency or you are witnessing a child in a life-threatening situation, call 911 immediately.
Please do not email or fax reports of child abuse or neglect as this might delay response.
