Hotline Helps Child Abuse Victims 24/7

A counselor answers the hotline.

Every ten seconds, child abuse is reported in the United States. Anonymous help for victims and their families can be found by calling Childhelp's National Child Abuse Hotline 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The hotline and its website offer crisis intervention, information, literature, and referrals to thousands of emergency, social service and support resources.

Counselors work with translators who speak over 140 languages. If you are being abused or know or suspect a child is being abused, call the hotline at 1-800-4-A-CHILD or text "childhelp" to 847411.
