How to Report Abuse and Neglect

From the recently updated DFPS website:

We’ve made many improvements to the system to make it a more convenient, secure, reliable, and accessible way to report non-emergency allegations of abuse, neglect or exploitation.

You can report abuse and neglect to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services at their website: If it is an emergency situation that requires action in less than 24 hours, call the Texas Abuse Hotline at 1-800-252-5400.
