Denver Safe from the Start
Denver Safe from the Start is a bilingual school-centered prevention program for children ages three to ten. It is based on the premise that strengthening families helps to protect children from abuse and ensure their healthy development.
The program works to increase the safety and well-being of children by:
- Teaching educators about child abuse prevention and how to help families access resources
- Providing child development education for parents together with access to critical resources to strengthen families
- Teaching young children basic self-protective and healthy living skills.
We Understand Childhood Developmental Milestones
Our mental health specialists work with Clayton Early Learning Center, Florence Crittenton Services, Head Start, Mile High United Way, Nurse Family Partnerships, and other community partners to provide home visits, on-site assessments, and referrals to mental health treatment.
Prevent Child Abuse with Training & Education
We are committed to providing training opportunities for professionals and community members who work with high-risk children—therapists, foster parents, caseworkers, police, prosecutors, victim advocates, medical doctors, school personnel and family members.
