If you believe a child is being abused, contact your local Child Protective Services agency or the National Child Abuse Hotline.
Reporting is anonymous and safe. You don’t have to confront someone you suspect is harming a child.
Provide as much information as possible, such as the child’s name, address, location, who the child’s siblings and parents are, and what your suspicion is. If the child is in immediate danger call law enforcement.
We have the responsibility to act, and in doing so provide a bright, safe and happy life for children everywhere.
