Resources

resourcesThe Ombudsman Office does more than handle concerns and complaints about child protection. We are also here to help answer your questions or to discuss your situation and help connect you with services or information that you need. Contact us anytime for assistance with your questions, or call or visit the websites of the state and local service providers listed below.

If you do know which agency you need to contact, but you cannot find the contact information for the agency, try the Colorado state agencies website.
