Denver Water Lead Reduction Program

NO amount of lead exposure is safe for young children. Children may be exposed to lead from a variety of sources, including lead-containing water pipes. Though the water that Denver Water provides is safe, clean and lead-free, lead can get into the water as it moves through customer-owned plumbing. So they’re replacing customer service lines, one impacted property at a time. To find out if you’re one of them, visit their website. Denver Water is a sponsor of the 2021 Rocky Mountain Early Childhood Conference.  

Home Visitation Resource Guide

This Home Visitation Resource Guide was developed by the Southwest (SW) Denver Home Visitation Collaborative, which was established in Year 4 of the LAUNCH Together-SW Denver initiative. LAUNCH Together was designed to improve the social and emotional outcomes for young children (prenatal through age eight) and their families in Colorado. A priority for LAUNCH Together-SW Denver has been to improve social and emotional well-being for families by supporting the providers who serve them. The SW Denver Home Visitation Collaborative is an example of this approach in action!
