Prevent Abuse - Community Outreach

Share this on:

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 and family members as well as access to critical resources to strengthen families
  • Teaching young children self-protective and prevention of childhood sexual abuse
