Abuse and Neglect of Older &
At-Risk Adults

With the support of community members like you, we help adults age 18 and older stay safe and well by investigating reports of abuse and neglect. We collaborate with the Denver Police Department, Denver City Attorney’s Office, and Denver’s District Attorney’s Office to evaluate and intervene when needed to protect adults in our community.

If you believe someone in Denver is a victim of adult abuse, neglect, or exploitation, call us at 720-944-4DHS (4347).
