Colorado has been rocked by reports of child sex abuse within the Catholic church. Following increased attention and investigation, the state’s bishops have announced an independent reparation and reconciliation program for those who were abused as minors. The program will provide compensation in what is being described as a “simple and non-adversarial means for survivors to have their stories heard and be provided with resources to aid in their continued healing.”
The program is specifically available to those who were minors at the time of abuse by clergy in the Denver, Colorado Springs and Pueblo dioceses. Online registration is now open and will remain open until November 30th, 2019, while Claims can be submitted through January 31st, 2020.
The Colorado program will protect the victim’s privacy if they desire it, but will not restrict survivors from speaking publicly about their abuse or their participation.
Funds will come from diocesan assets rather than from donor funds meant to benefit schools, ministries, or other programs. The program is a voluntary alternative to legal action and will be overseen by a committee of people with no affiliation to the dioceses.
Our experience team will help you register and maximize the amount of compensation you receive.
Time is Limited. You must act now to obtain compensation.
