This week, Colorado created a Stay At Home CO Guide full of free resources, support and activities to help you, your family, and your loved ones during this time.
While we are on a statewide Stay at Home Order and as we continue to practice physical distancing, social support has never been more important to families because isolation and economic stress increase risks for child maltreatment and family violence.
We also know that families are trying to meet their basic needs right now. This is the best tool we have right now to increase concrete supports in times of need – one of the five ways we can strengthen families and prevent child abuse. Whether you are looking for help with rent control, understanding the stay at home order, or healthcare coverage, you can begin here.
The website is regularly updated and also includes many hotlines to report concerns and access support, including the Colorado Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline, Colorado Crisis Line and Domestic Violence hotline, as well as wellness, education and entertainment activities for families.
It is up to ALL of US to promote the positive and strengthen families.
Right now, it is critical that all families have equal access to help getting through this time. Everyone deserves a chance to thrive, and each of us can play a role in helping families that are struggling, especially now.
Share tips, resources and stories about programs that have helped you get through tough times. Hearing stories and recommendations from other parents who have accessed support has an incredibly impact on our communities.
