If you suspect a child is being abused, neglected or exposed to an unsafe situation, trust your instincts and report it.
You may save a child’s life, or from being inflicted with further harm.
If you or a child are in immediate danger, or if you are thinking of hurting yourself, your infant, or someone else, immediately call 911, your doctor, or reach out for outside help.
Parenting is a full-time job, full of joys, trials, challenges, and triumphs. If you are feeling fearful, stressed, or overwhelmed, we encourage you to seek help.
