Is This an Emergency?
If you or someone you know is being endangered or abused right now, call 911 immediately and the emergency staff will help you.
I’m Not Sure?
If you suspect that someone is being abused, you need to tell a responsible person about it – a parent, a teacher, a doctor or nurse, a police officer, a social worker, or someone you trust.
The Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) is dedicated to the prevention of child abuse. Serving the United States, its territories, and Canada, the Hotline is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with professional crisis counselors who, through interpreters, can provide assistance in 170 languages. The Hotline offers crisis intervention, information, literature, and referrals to thousands of emergency, social service, and support resources. All calls are anonymous and confidential.
