- Gov't help -
Recovery from child abuse is available, if we work for it - There are many paths to recovering from child abuse, and some of them cost almost no money. Then, too, there are benefits from getting assistance from the professional community trained to assist us. Healing journeys can include sharing our trauma secrets and getting help in many appropriate settings. Furthermore, there are numerous government and non profit groups we can turn to for help.

Finding State / Local Gov't Help

2-1-1 US - phone number - get local services !!!

2-1-1 is an easy-to-remember three-digit phone number that brings people and services together. And 2-1-1 US is the entity that brings together the rich diversity of the national 2-1-1 movement.

The mission of 2-1-1 US is to ensure that 2-1-1 is Excellent, Everywhere and Always. The rapid growth of 2-1-1 during the first decade of development has transformed access to human services and this achievement needs to be both enhanced and sustained.

The essence of 2-1-1 is in its simplicity: its for everyone and can be remembered by everyone, free and confidential, makes the entire human services sector at every level of government work more efficiently, has proven itself time after time as an invaluable resource in the aftermath of a disaster, and is the number to call to give help and to get help.

  In the event that you are the victim of child abuse or suspect that you may be the victim of child abuse please be assured that a variety of options exist for you in order to protect yourself and your safety; it is important that if you are reading this, you understand that you are never to blame for child abuse you are a victim of child abuse and did nothing to contribute to your current situation.

Child abuse continues to be an increasing problem in the United States. In order to decrease the occurrence of this horrific behavior, it is first essential that child abuse information be made available to the public. Many organizations have been created that focus on providing individuals and communities with access to child abuse facts. Most States throughout the United States have some type of Child Protective Services Agency that handles the safety and the protection of children in that State.
