One hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in my bank account, nor what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child.

Support Safe Harbor to Support Our Kids

Report Child Abuse

Do you have information concerning the abuse or neglect of a child-victim?

If you have knowledge of any act of abuse being or having been perpetrated upon a child-victim, Tennessee Code Annotated § 37-1-403 requires that you report the incident of abuse to the appropriate authority.

IF YOU SUSPECT CHILD ABUSE YOU MUST REPORT IT - IT’S THE LAW!

Report anonymously by calling the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services Hotline:

1-877-237-0004

Parent Helpline: 1-800-356-6767

Phone counseling available 24 hours a day with trained professionals.
Spanish speaking counselors available weekdays after 6:00 p.m. and weekends.

Failure to report abuse of which you have knowledge is a criminal offense in the State of Tennessee and punishable by law.
