91% of Tennyson kids have experienced neglect, trauma, and/or physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. Studies show that these kids are at much greater risk of homelessness, suicidality, substance abuse, PTSD, incarceration, and unemployment. They deserve better—and we are committed to delivering that.
Along with our community of child welfare leaders, advocates, and supporters, we are building a world that keeps more kids out of welfare, keeps families together, and helps all to heal and thrive.
You can be an advocate for children by learning the signs of abuse and reporting it. Remember, you are reporting suspicion of child abuse. Even if you aren’t sure, it’s better to let authorities check it out. You might save a child’s life!
Colorado has one toll-free phone number to report child neglect and abuse 24/7, 365 days a year. Please call the Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline at 844-CO-4-KIDS (844-264-5437) to report concerns about a child’s safety and well-being. All calls are confidential and will be routed to the county where a child resides. If it is an emergency or you are witnessing a child in a life-threatening situation, call 911 immediately.
