I wish there was more help that I could provide. Please remember that you don’t deserve to be abused, and you WILL escape this abuse. The best resource I can provide you right now is this:


The best thing about this website is they have a child abuse hotline.

When calling 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453), a qualified crisis counselor will answer and assist you, if you:

  • Need help and want to talk to a counselor.
  • Are in physical or emotional crisis and need support and encouragement.
  • Need to be connected to the best possible resources in your area.
  • Have questions about the signs of child abuse.
  • Need to find out how to report known or suspected abuse.
  • Have questions about the reporting process and what you might expect through the process.
  • Want to learn about Childhelp programs that will address you or your child’s needs.
  • Want to learn about resources available to parents, grandparents and caregivers.
  • Need emotional support as a survivor of abuse.
  • Want a referral to an agency, counseling or other services near where you live.
