Reporting Child Abuse/Neglect Concerns
Park County Department of Human Services assesses children and families where there have been allegations of physical child abuse, sexual child abuse, and child neglect. Our main focus is to identify and address the safety issues that brought the family to our attention. We work with partners and resources in collaboration with other agencies to achieve our mission of safety, permanency and family empowerment in the community and in families. Families involved in our program will receive direct services from a caseworker, combined with services from the community and/or other service providers. Other services may include substance abuse and mental health treatment for parents and children, home-based services, and sexual abuse treatment.
When you contact us, please provide as much of the following information as possible in regard to the child(ren) you are concerned about. The information is important to ensure the safety and welfare of the individuals involved.
For emergencies after hours, call 911 or (719) 836-4121 ext 5 for Park County Communications.
