Help Prevent Child Abuse

Child Abuse Prevention Month is a month-long call to action to protect our most vulnerable community members, kids. It’s a time to raise awareness about child abuse in our community, and recognize the importance of working together to prevent it. Every community member — school personnel, coaches, neighbors, businesses, teammates, — is responsible for keeping kids safe. During the month of April, join us and do your part to raise awareness, help you neighbors, and prevent child abuse. Please spread the word.

4 Ways You Can Prevent Child Abuse

  1. Reach Out to Families + Children


  2. Seek Support
    • Parenting is the hardest job you will ever have — it takes a village.

    • Call 415-441-KIDS anytime, day or night, for parenting support.


  3. Report Suspected Abuse
    • Don’t hesitate, if you have a suspicion report it.
    • Call the City of San Francisco’s Family + Children’s Services Hotline 415-558-2650 If you are a mandated reporter be sure to tell them
