Child Abuse Alert

Our updated 20-page booklet, Child Abuse Alert, is aimed at the general public as well as friends, neighbors, and family members of children at risk, and professionals who work with children and are legally mandated to report child abuse. Child Abuse Alert outlines the signs of different types of abuse and neglect, including physical abuse, sexual abuse, and sexual commercial exploitation. It describes how to report suspected abuse and gives phone numbers. It was published by JCCA in partnership with the Council of Family and Child Caring Agencies (COFCCA). First published in 1998, the booklet was updated in 2014 due to the continuing demand from human resources departments, teachers, libraries, and others organizations in the tri-state area.

Child Abuse Alert is available online, as a printable PDF, or you can order one or more copies to be mailed to you free of charge.
