Reporting suspected cases of child abuse or neglect is everyone's responsibility, whether a mandated professional or a private citizen.  If you suspect a child is being neglected or abused contact the Department of Children and Families Area Office serving the child's residence. Offices are staffed between 9 am and 5 pm weekdays. To make a report at any other time, including after 5 p.m. and on weekends and holidays, please call the Child-At-Risk Hotline at 1-800-792-5200.
