What is CCR?
The Colorado Community Response (CCR) program operates through a partnership with the Department of Human Services. The program is designed to provide family navigation services as a promising practice for preventing child maltreatment and strengthening family functioning by providing access to concrete services in times of need and assisting them in accessing formal systems and informal resources to meet those needs. CCR aims to increase the family’s protective capacities through service linkages, case advocacy and connections to both formal and informal resources. CCR fills a gap in the child maltreatment continuum by serving families who have been reported to child welfare for alleged child abuse or neglect, and whose referral was either “screened out” (was not opened for investigation) or closed after initial assessment.
