If at any time you witness or believe a child is in immediate danger, we strongly urge you to call your local police department’s emergency number (911).
Each state also designates specific agencies to receive and investigate reports of suspected child abuse and neglect. Typically, this responsibility is carried out by Child Protective Services. For information or assistance with reporting, please call the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline at 800–4–A–CHILD (800–422–4453) or contact your local Child Protective Services agency.
Additional state contact information is available from the Child Welfare Information Gateway website.
