Report Child Abuse

Posted by Sandra On October - 8 - 2009

United States Child Abuse Reporting Numbers

If you suspect abuse DO NOT WAIT until you can “prove” child abuse — make a report whenever your worries about the safety of a child turn into suspicions that the child is being abused or neglected.

If the abuse is happening right now, call now.
