You may have seen mention in the newspaper of a new website from the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS), titled Community Performance Center, or cdhsdatamatters.org. This site provides data and information on topics related to child welfare, including child abuse and neglect, permanency, visitation, out-of-home care, and more. Data is presented by topic and by county or judicial district. There is also a section on the site where you can report child abuse, and a feature that allows users to sign up for data updates. This site is an important part of CDHS’s goal of transparency for child welfare services.
