Connecting 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.

We 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.
