Safety and injury prevention resources for families
Keeping kids safe with our community partners
Children’s Hospital Colorado partners with several community organizations and programs to help keep kids safe:
Children's Colorado and Rocky Mountain Kiwanis District partnered to create the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Institute (KPTI) for injury research, prevention and outreach education.
The Safe Kids Denver Metro coalition utilizes a combination of education, research, advocacy and media to prevent accidental injury in children ages fourteen years and younger in the Denver metropolitan area.
SRTS programs encourage and enable more children to safely walk and bike to school. The programs examine conditions around schools and work to improve safety and accessibility and reduce traffic and air pollution in the vicinity of schools, thus encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age.
The Junglemobile Program provides injury prevention education to children ages 3-10 throughout the rural areas of Colorado, Wyoming and western Nebraska. An ambulance no longer used by the hospital has been converted into an interactive teaching vehicle and travels to rural communities. Schedule a visit from the Junglemobile!
Children's Colorado offers the only hospital-based multidisciplinary child abuse program in Colorado, and one of the oldest in the nation. With our partner, The Kempe Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect, we help identify, treat and console child abuse victims and their families.
