The Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline is primarily funded by donations and sponsorships. Whether a caring individual or cause-oriented corporation, you can help us ensure that there is ALWAYS someone ready and able to answer the call of a child in need.
The Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline is dedicated to the prevention of child abuse. Serving the United States, Canada, U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Guam, the Hotline is staffed 24 hours daily with professional crisis counselors who use a database of thousands of emergency, social service, and support resources.
The Hotline’s services are available to professionals who need help to report suspected abuse. This includes school nurses, teachers, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, pediatric dentists, fire investigators, and members of the faith community. All calls are anonymous and toll-free.
The Childhelp Hotline counselors can:
CALL 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453), then push 1 to talk to a Hotline counselor.
