Child Abuse & Neglect

Child Protective Services staff investigates reports of child abuse or neglect and provides services to protect the child and strengthen the family.

Every child needs to be treasured, protected and nurtured. Unfortunately, some parents can't -- or won't -- care for their children. When they neglect or abuse them, someone must step in to ensure the children's safety. That's the job of DFCS, along with the police and the courts.

To report child abuse:

Please contact the local DFCS office in your county or the local police department.

Reports are taken 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 1-855-GACHILD / 1-855-422-4453
