Service Details

Description

Minnesota's child protection system responds to situations where children are alleged to be maltreated and helps support families to safely care for their children. The Department of Human Services works with Minnesota's 87 counties, 11 federally recognized tribes and community-based providers to support interventions that strengthen families and prevent child maltreatment.


Providing resources to families for basic needs, such as housing or child care, significantly improve the safety of children in their homes and communities.


Eligibility

Neglect, physical abuse, mental injury and sexual abuse are all considered child abuse in Minnesota. Each is defined in state law. Neglect is the most common form of maltreatment.


Application Instructions

Call the county or tribal social service agency, or the police, where the child lives if you believe that a child is being hurt or neglected.


Some people, whose jobs involve caring for children, such as doctors, teachers and ministers, are required by law to report suspected child abuse or neglect.
Other people, such as neighbors or relatives, are encouraged to report if they think a child is being abused or neglected.


Your report is confidential and your name cannot be released to the family except by a court order.


If the child is in immediate danger or abandoned, dial 911 for emergency help.
