Below is a list of phone numbers that may be helpful. 

1. To Report Suspected Child Abuse

If you are a mandated reporter, (ie: teacher, Doctor, CASA Volunteer, Youth Leader, Daycare Provider etc.), it is your legal responsibility to report suspected abuse. The phone numbers to referrals have changed to a statewide hotline. Call 1-855-422-4453 or 911 if you feel the children are in eminent danger. Also, better response is given if you go online to the office of Child Advocacy and complete a referral form. oca.Georgia.gov/form-reporting or call 404-656-4200.
