If an adult suspects a child is being abused or harmed, it must be reported by the person voicing the concern. Texas law mandates that all adults report their suspicions to the child abuse hotline at 1-800-252-5400.
If you suspect a child is in immediate danger, call 9-1-1.
If the concern relates to possible abuse by a non-family member, first report the abuse. Then contact the family and let them know it is your duty to report your suspicions.
