Child Abuse Resources

Child abuse and violence affect millions of children each year. Child abuse includes physical, sexual, emotional abuse and neglect. A number of different government agencies and nongovernmental organizations provide assistance for the victims of child abuse. In this section you will find state-specific links to mandatory reporting requirements, child abuse statutes, legal procedures, forms, and more. Also included are links to the U.S. Child Welfare Information Gateway, which has information about recognizing and responding to child abuse, the U.S. Dept. of Justice Office for Victims of Crime, and more.
