If a child has been physically, sexually, verbally or emotionally abused, we can help.
Under the law, any person who suspects a child is being abused must report that allegation to CPS by email or phone. But because CPS workers are so overwhelmed with reports and can’t always investigate within the required 24 hours, we will investigate and provide safety for the child, regardless of age.
If you have reported the child to CPS and your report has either not yet been investigated or the child has not yet been removed, we will contact CPS and use our resources to learn why or why not, plus try to convince them to act quickly.
We use a variety of surveillance methods to help determine if a child is being neglected, abused or abandoned.
