Reporting Child Abuse
Anyone sexually, physically, or emotionally abused or neglected as a minor or who knows about a situation of such abuse or neglect should immediately report it to the state child abuse hotline--1-800-CO-4-KIDS--or the local police or sheriff where the abuse occurred. If a child is currently at risk of abuse, immediately call 911.
To report any sexual misconduct involving a priest, deacon, religious, seminarian, diocesan or parish employee or a diocesan or parish volunteer, please call Father Derrek Scott, Vicar General, or Nancy Martinez, Diocesan Human Resources Generalist, at 719-544-9861 or complete form below. The information you submit will be reported to appropriate diocesan personnel, who will reach out to you as soon as possible to gather more information. The diocese will report every allegation of abuse or neglect of a minor to civil authorities.
When the sexual abuse has been committed by a bishop or a superior of a religious order, call the national hotline at 800-276-1562 or submit a report through https://reportbishopabuse.org/.
