Did You Know?

According to the 2016 KIDS COUNT in Colorado! report published by the Colorado Children’s Campaign, when looking at the 2014 child abuse and neglect rate (per 1,000), with a Colorado rate of 7.8, the following data was reported for the Triad counties;

Clear Creek: 26.5        Gilpin: 8.7      Jefferson: 4.5

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.  We all have a role to play in improving the rate of maltreatment of children.  The Center for the Study of Social Policy's Strengthening Families Protective Factor Framework serves as a foundation for preventing child abuse.  The five protective factors are: Parental Resilience, Social Connections, Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development, Concrete Support in Times of Need, and Children’s Social and Emotional Development.
