Child Abuse is reported on an average of every 10 seconds.
Three children die every day as a result of such abuse. Sadly, Colorado has one of the highest rates of child abuse in the country. According to the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS), Colorado ranks 3rd in the nation for deaths resulting from child abuse. Further compounding the problem, Colorado’s state funding to help battle child abuse ranks among the lowest in the nation.
