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.
