New Phone Number for Reporting Child Abuse

Ohioans who suspect child abuse or neglect now only need to remember one phone number. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) has launched 855-O-H-CHILD (855-642-4453) an automated telephone directory that will link callers directly to a child welfare or law enforcement office in their county. Reports can be anonymous.

 

There is also a short You Tube video on the directory.
