The purpose of the Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline is to promote greater safety for Colorado’s children. Everyone in the community plays a role in the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Learn more about the new Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline Reporting System.
The hotline is designed to provide one statewide, easy-to-remember phone number for reporting suspected child abuse and neglect 24/7, 365 days a year. All hotline calls will be routed to the county where a child resides.
Anyone witnessing a child in a life-threatening situation should call 911 immediately. If it is not an emergency, call 1-844-CO-4-Kids or 1-844-264-5437 to report all concerns for a child's safety and well-being.
