Larimer County Dept. of Human Services - Child Support Program

Many children and custodial parents face financial difficulties because non-custodial parents neglect the responsibility to provide support for their children. Child Support assists in establishing legal paternity and initiating or modifying child support orders. Contact Child Support staff at (970) 498-7600.

Larimer County Dept. of Human Services - Child Protection Services

Child Protection Services provides 24-hour assistance/response to allegations of child abuse and neglect. Referrals can be made by law enforcement, schools, medical professionals, or anyone who feels that a situation warrants investigation. Each referral is screened and may be investigated by a visit or phone interview to determine appropriate followup. To report child abuse or neglect, the Child Abuse Hotline is available 24/7 at (970) 498-6990, or call 1-844-CO-4-KIDS.

Larimer County Dept. of Human Services - Foster Care/Kinship Care

Foster care/kinship care is designed to provide temporary care, supervision, and support to children ages 0-18 who cannot live at home because of abuse or neglect. While foster parents are not related to the children, kinship providers are often relatives or are friends who are close to the child and considered family. This program provides recruitment, training, certification, and other services for care providers. Caseworkers work closely with foster parents/kinship caregivers. The children are covered by Medicaid, and foster parents receive financial support to help cover additional costs. For more information on becoming a foster parent, call (970) 498-6595.
