Report Abuse Now
We all have a duty to prevent abuse when and where ever we see it. If you see and/or suspect a child is in immediate danger, call the police immediately.
If it is not an emergency situation, contact a local rape crisis center or family services agency in your state. Many times reports can be filed anonymously, if that is a concern. For information on resources please consult our list of state agencies below.
