Watching Out for Wisconsin's Children and Families

As Wisconsin keeps physically healthy by staying Safer at Home, children have fewer interactions with many of the professionals trained to observe and mandated to report suspected child abuse.

It is critical now, more than ever, for families, friends, and neighbors to be aware of the signs of child abuse and neglect and to know how to report those signs to their local child welfare agencies. 

This one-page flyer from the Department of Children and Families can help you and your partners understand the signs of abuse and neglect and know how to report suspected incidents. If you suspect abuse or neglect, contact your county’s child protective services (CPS) agency immediately.  Your local CPS agency’s contact information can be found online or by calling the United Way’s resource line by dialing 2-1-1.
