Finding Help In My State

Phone list courtesy ChildHelp USA.

Abuse must be reported within the state in which it occurs.
When seeking to report abuse, it is important to remember these points:

* Not every state has a reporting hotline
* Not every hotline is accessible 24 hours a day
* If the state does have a hotline, it may only be accessible within that state
* Should you need to report in another state or the particular state does not have a hotline, you may need to contact the out-of-state reporting number or the specific county in which the abuse occurred. The Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline can provide these numbers for you.
