Ensuring safety for Colorado’s children today and envisioning a stronger child protection system for the future.
The Office of Colorado’s Child Protection Ombudsman was established in 2010.
We help citizens navigate the child protection system and direct them towards needed services and resources.
We objectively research, review and investigate individual and systemic concerns about the delivery of services to children and families within the child protection system.
We illuminate the strengths and weaknesses within the child protection system that are directly impacting the safety, permanency and well-being of children and families
We make recommendations to the public, child protection agencies, the General Assembly and the Governor that help reform and improve outcomes for children and families.
