SafeCare® is an evidence-based in-home parent education program designed for high risk families with children birth to five. The program in Colorado is currently piloting in 11 community-based agencies serving 39 counties and two tribal nations. SafeCare Colorado (SCC) is designed to be home based, voluntary, and preventive. The Kempe Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect (Kempe) oversees the implementation of SCC. Statewide program oversight is provided by the Division of Community and Family Support in the Office of Early Childhood at the Colorado Department of Human Services. The evaluation of the pilot project is conducted by the Social Work Research Center in the School of Social Work at Colorado State University.
