What Is Child Welfare?

Child Welfare Services constitutes a specialized set of services that are
intended to strengthen the ability of a family to protect and care for their
own children, minimize harm to children and youth, and ensure timely
permanency planning. Services are aimed at stabilizing the family situation
and strengthening the family’s capacity to care for their children. When
safety is not possible within the family, services are focused on the child’s
need for a stable, permanent home as quickly as possible.

What To Do If You Suspect a Child Is Being Abused or Neglected
All Colorado citizens are encouraged to report suspected abuse or neglect of
children. When making a report to Child Protective Services (CPS), it is
helpful to provide as much detailed information as possible about the
child(ren), parents, and situation. Whenever possible, provide the following

  • Names and date of birth of the child(ren) and all other children in the household
  • Home address
  • School the child(ren) attends
  • Name and contact information for the parent(s) and / or caregivers
  • Place of employment (if applicable) for the parents / caregivers
  • Current location, if different from the home address
  • Reason for suspected abuse or neglect
