Do you have concerns that a child is being abused?

If a child is in immediate danger, please call 911. If you are concerned for a child in your community, the Child Abuse Hotline is the best place for you to request a professional investigation into the child’s situation. You do not need evidence or to be sure of any abuse taking place. Remember: suspicion is enough to call the Child Abuse Hotline 855-503-7233.

What are indicators of child abuse?

The symptoms of abuse are varied and can be different for every child, ranging from physical symptoms – like bruises, marks, or retreating from physical contact – to emotional symptoms – like rebellious behavior, shyness, or inability to focus. We offer Stewards of Children trainings that will equip you with the information you need to help and protect the children in your life.
