Description:

Colorado communities are engaging in an eight-month local participatory planning process using the Colorado Child Maltreatment Prevention Framework for Action (Framework). The Framework is designed as a tool to guide strategic thinking, align strategies, and maximize shared outcomes to prevent child maltreatment and promote child well-being at the state and local level. The Framework will guide community planning to mobilize action that protects children, and then track implementation and measure progress. At the end of the eight-month planning process, the fifteen grantees will have outlined a local maltreatment prevention plan by completing specific tasks outlined in the community planning toolbox.
