The Kempe Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect
The Kempe Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect was founded in 1972 by Denver pediatrician C. Henry Kempe, who pioneered the identification and recognition of child abuse and neglect. For almost 40 years, Kempe has been at the forefront of the child protection movement and leader in the fight against child abuse and neglect. Nearly 800,000 children are reported as having been abused or neglected in this country each year, including 11,000 in Colorado alone. But child abuse is not a hopeless cause. We see success stories every day.
The Kempe Center treats abused children, trains professionals and conducts research to ensure a healthy and hopeful future for these innocent victims. Every child seen at the Kempe Center is in the hands of the nation's leading experts on child abuse. We have pioneered not only programs designed to heal children and strengthen families but also to train professionals worldwide. Each year, we provide direct support to hundreds of children. We also train, educate and support thousands of professionals throughout Colorado and nationwide.
