Child Abuse

If you suspect that a child, any child, is being abused the following information can help you find ways to get that child the protection that they deserve.  The information can also help you to protect other children in the future.

Child abuse in all its forms (emotional, physical, or sexual) is a horrible ongoing and growing tragedy. Silence allows it to continue.  If you know, or even think you know, of a child who is being abused or neglected, please do not remain silent.

Many abused and neglected children never come to the attention of authorities. Please use this resource if you are in danger of abusing a child or if you think you know of any child being abused.
