Warning to Parents in Denver

Putting our kids first

The city of Denver recently announced it was going to tap into emergency reserves to hire 40 additional child welfare workers to handle ballooning caseloads.

Colorado ranks fifth in the nation in terms of wealth and per-capita income. Yet we have the eighth-highest rate of children living in poverty. Colorado is home to one of the largest concentrations of bachelor's degree graduates in the United States. Yet we rank among the bottom 10 states in terms of the number of students who graduate from high school.

Note: Poverty is often misinterpreted as neglect.
