The Board of Mesa County Commissioners today adopted a proclamation at their April 2, 2018, administrative public hearing recognizing April as Child Abuse Prevention Month, encouraging those who suspect child abuse and neglect to report it immediately.
The Mesa County hotline for reporting child abuse and neglect is 970-242-1211. Calls to the alternative statewide hotline, 1-844-CO-4-KIDS (1-844-264-5437) will be routed to Mesa County child protection professionals. Both phone numbers will reach someone who can help 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Everyone in our community can play a role in the prevention of child abuse and neglect.
