Reporting and Emergent Resources

If you suspect or know that a child is being abused or neglected, there are things you can do. If you or someone else is in immediate and serious danger, you should call 911. National and local resources are available to provide assistance and information about reporting suspected maltreatment.

If the situation is not one of immediate, serious danger, you may contact your local child protective services office or law enforcement agency.

Also, you may call or text the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline. Their number is 1.800.4.A.CHILD (1.800.422.4453). Professional crisis counselors are available 24/7 in over 170 languages. All calls are confidential. The hotline offers crisis intervention, information, and referrals to thousands of emergency, social service, and support resources.
