    Child Abuse & Neglect Hotline

    Reporting child abuse is everyone's responsibility

    If you suspect child abuse or neglect, call our toll-free hotline at 1-800-392-3738. Our team will be available to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are hearing or speech impaired, call Relay Missouri at 1-800-735-2466 (voice) or 1-800-735-2966 (text).

    If you are mandated by law to report child abuse and neglect, you can make a report online. We encourage mandated reporters to make a report online when possible to keep the hotline open for the general public.
