Butte County Children’s Services’ goal is to keep children safe and at home with their families whenever possible. However, when that is not possible, CSD may intervene on behalf of children who are in need of protection from abuse and neglect. Anyone can report suspected child abuse or neglect. Reporting abuse or neglect can protect a child and get help for a family—it may even save a child's life.
If you suspect a child is being abused or neglected, or if you are a child who is being maltreated, please call Butte County Children’s Services 24-hour hotline at 1.800.400.0902, so professionals can assess the situation.
