DSC_0014.JPGNot One More Child in Arapahoe County kicked off in May of 2014 with Arapahoe County Commissioner Nancy Sharpe and 18th Judicial District Attorney George Brauchler.

The coalition is made up of hospital workers, educators and school officials, heath experts, child welfare professionals, attorneys, nurses, church and community leaders, members of the Coroner’s office and law enforcement officers just to name a few.

Together, we share our resources and stay connected to create a successful child welfare system in Arapahoe County because no singular agency can do the work alone in preventing child abuse and neglect.

Report Child Abuse and Neglect in Arapahoe County to 303-636-1750 or 1-844-CO-4-KIDS

If you believe a child is in immediate danger, please call 9-1-1. If you have concerns that a child is being abused or neglected but is not in immediate danger, please call our 24/7 hotline at 303-636-1750 or 1-844-CO-4-KIDS. Your report is anonymous and confidential.

Education

The coalition focuses on education and networking in the community. Members attend quarterly meetings to stay connected with various events and seek opportunities to collaborate efforts and key messages with other organizations. Key interests include:
  • Domestic Violence, Substance Abuse and Addiction Awareness 
    Helping families identify issues that lead to domestic violence at home and provide resources.
       
  • Healthcare Education 
    Provide resources and support to parents before, during and after births at hospitals and doctor's offices.             

  • Family Resources 
          Have an active role at schools and the community providing education and resources about safety at home.
          
  • Public Awareness and Education 
          Focus on marketing the upcoming state hotline, ACDHS hotline and reporting possible abuse and neglect.

217.JPGConnecting people, sharing resources and innovating ways to build safe communities - we are a coalition committed to helping our families and making sure not one more child is abused and neglected in Arapahoe County.

It takes a community to support a family and ensure they don’t reach a level of crisis where a child may be harmed. Not one more child should suffer abuse or neglect in Arapahoe County. Not one more family should go without support. And not one agency can do this alone.

222.JPGWe need your continued support turning these ideas into action. Please spread the word among your colleagues. Ask them to join you in this next meeting.

We look forward to your partnership and participation as we work together to build prevention strategies and networks to better protect children and support families in Arapahoe County.
