Promote the Parent Helpline
The Parent Helpline at 1-800-CHILDREN is an information and referral line that can help direct you to the services you need. It is free, confidential, and multi-lingual. This is NOT the NYS Child Abuse Hotline. If you would like to report suspected child abuse, please call 1-800-342-3720. If you are in a crisis situation or are having a life-threatening emergency, please call 911. If you need assistance locating services such as parenting skills classes, domestic violence services, or child care, we can help.
