The Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) on Jan. 1 marked the one-year anniversary of the launch of 1-844-CO-4-KIDS, a statewide hotline to report suspected child abuse and neglect. The hotline directly links callers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to the appropriate call-taker among the state's 65 counties. Counties have historically received and handled reports of child abuse and neglect. That has not changed. Counties remain on the frontlines when it comes to this critical role. The hotline was built to streamline the process. All reports of suspected child abuse and neglect remain confidential.
