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.
