Who We Are

KidSafe is the only independent Chittenden County, Vermont agency focused solely on keeping our community working together to prevent and address child abuse and neglect.

KidSafe’s mission is: to engage community groups, individuals and agencies to work together to improve our community’s prevention of and response to child abuse and neglect. We envision a Vermont in which every child grows up healthy and able to live up to their full potential.  


KidSafe Collaborative is:


KidSafe Collaborative grew out of a grassroots process when social workers and other human services provider realized they could be of greater service to families in need of support if they were able to share information about their clients – both children and adults.  From this beginning – the first ‘child protection team’ meetings at the former Mary Fletcher Hospital in 1969 - grew long-term agency commitments to collaborate and work as a community to address and prevent child abuse and neglect. 

Evolving and expanding through incorporation as the Community Network for Children, Youth and Families in 1986, a major federal grant in 1998, and a range of added projects and activities, KidSafe has become the recognized leader of a unique collaborative process.
