Report Abuse 

Your report could save a child’s life

Reporting child abuse is a critical step in keeping children safe and getting their families the help they need. Although it may be frightening or uncomfortable, making a report could save a child’s life.

When do I make a report?

Know the signs. If you see signs of abuse that give you a reasonable suspicion of abuse or neglect, take action.

Once you make a report, local child welfare and/or law enforcement professionals will assess the situation and determine a course of action to keep the child safe, create stability for the child and their family, and help ensure the child and family receive the resources or services they need.
