Public Awareness Committee

A subcommittee of the Hotline Steering Committee (HSC) was formed to focus on strategic planning for a public awareness campaign to launch the state's new child abuse and neglect reporting hotline, and to raise public awareness of the need to report suspected child abuse and neglect. Through the subcommittee, CDHS will continue to expand and strengthen existing public awareness efforts by helping to coordinate and collaborate with stakeholders actively working in Colorado to prevent and raise awareness of child abuse and neglect.

The Colorado Child Abuse & Neglect Hotline 1-844-CO-4-KIDS went live on January 1, 2015, and limited efforts have begun to publicize the hotline. The public awareness campaign officially launched in April 2015, as part of Child Abuse Prevention Month.
