Adult Protective Services

Report Child or Adult Abuse or Neglect

To report child or adult abuse or neglect, call 1-844-264-5437 or 970-707-7005. If it is an emergency or you are witnessing a child or adult in a life threatening situation, call 911 immediately. 


Protective services are provided to individuals who are unable to care for themselves. We assist family members in making safe arrangements and in some situations, may assume protective care if others are unable to do so. 

Services include:
  • Arranging for legal assistance and judicial processes
  • Assisting in money management
  • Assisting persons to move from potentially harmful situations
  • Providing a protective placement
We work closely with the Senior Resources Office to provide supportive care and resource information.

*Adult Protection Team Meetings are open to the public the first Thursday of every month at 2:00 at DHHS*
