Child Abuse Alert Desk Reference

Jewish Child Care Association (JCCA), one of the nation’s oldest nonsectarian child and family service agencies, and WNYW-TV have teamed up to prevent child abuse with a new PSA by Good Day anchor Rosanna Scotto called “Every Child Deserves to Grow Up Hopeful.”


The PSA coincides with the publication of the updated 20-page booklet Child Abuse Alert, which 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 is being published by Jewish Child Care Association in partnership with the Council of Family and Child Caring Agencies (COFCCA).  First published in 1998, the booklet is being updated due to the continuing demand from human resources departments, teachers, libraries, and others organizations.

Child Abuse Alert BookletAccording to Richard Altman, CEO of JCCA, “We are very grateful to WNYW-TV for informing viewers about the signs of child abuse and our work with vulnerable children and families of all backgrounds. Nearly 80% of children who die because of abuse and neglect are younger than five years old.”

For 191 years, Jewish Child Care Association has provided comprehensive services to vulnerable children and families without regard to race or creed, including 16,000 at-risk children and families who have been neglected or abused, immigrant families, and those building new lives.  These programs include: foster care and residential treatment; coordinated community services; mental health and preventive services; educational services; early childhood, special needs, and adoption programs; and services in the Jewish community.

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. If you would like more than 25 copies, please contact us to arrange shipping payment.

To report child abuse or neglect, call the New York State Child Abuse Hot Line.
Anonymous calls are accepted.
