County contact information

The Colorado Adult Protective Services (APS) program was established in statute in 1983, and rules detail how the APS program must be implemented. APS investigates allegations of physical and sexual abuse, caretaker neglect, exploitation and harmful acts (collectively referred to as “mistreatment”) and self-neglect of at-risk adults. APS offers protective services to improve the health, safety, and welfare of at-risk adult experiencing mistreatment or self-neglect. APS uses community-based services and resources, health care services, family and friends when appropriate, and other support systems while protecting the at-risk adult’s right to confidentiality, self-determination, and least-restrictive intervention.

Many of CDHS’s programs, benefits and services are administered by county human services departments. Use our clickable map to find county contact information.
