Child Abuse and Neglect

If you know or suspect that a child is being abused or neglected, please report it immediately. Anyone can file a report of abuse or neglect.

The Department of Children and Families (DCF) is committed to protecting children from abuse and neglect, and in partnership with families and communities, to ensure that children are able to grow and thrive in a safe and nurturing environment. When children are abused or neglected by the people responsible for caring for them, DCF will intervene to ensure the safety of the children.
