The State of Our Nation/The State of Our Children

Do four children die at the hands of abuse or neglect in the United States every day?  Those were the findings in a 2006 report issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

2010 UPDATE: “The number and rate of fatalities have been increasing during the past 5 years.” – U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, Child Welfare Division

Reporting Abuse

If the friends, neighbors, family, or other associations know, see or suspect mental illness, rage, hostility, indifference, resentment – a child may be in danger, susceptible to abuse, neglect, exploitation or murder.
Children are completely helpless and most often suffer abuse and death at the hands of the very people in charge of their welfare. As a culture we must put a spotlight on these harsh realities and make it known to perpetrators of abuse, our government and to the children whose very lives may depend on our involvement.

Make the pledge to Always Protect Every Child

If you suspect child abuse or neglect call the state Children Youth & Families NEW reporting hotline:

1-855-333-SAFE (7233)

  • im a firm believer that those who see or suspect abuse and still idley sit by and do nothing are just as guilty as the abuser. do unto others… what happened to this?! get off your ass and do something for someone else -daily!! teach your children to do the same. its called compassion, and its one of the things i am most proud of that i have managed to instill in my young children’s minds and hearts.

Do you have anything to say?
