Project Abstract

The Colorado Community Response program provides voluntary services to families who are reported to the state for child abuse or neglect but whose circumstances do not rise to the level of child welfare service involvement. The program is designed to reduce incidences of neglect by increasing the financial stability and self-sufficiency of caregivers. The Colorado Lab is supporting a randomized control trial determining the efficacy of the program.
