Alabama Child Abuse Resources

The US state of Alabama has several resources for victims and survivors of child abuse and domestic violence. Below is a brief directory to some of the most common resources as well as a quick hotline list for Alabama at the bottom of this article.

For immediate law enforcement help with an abusive situation, you should call 911. If you would rather not make an emergency call, your local phone directory will have numbers to police stations in your area. Also, the USA Cops website has a comprehensive listing here by county of police department addresses and phone numbers.

One of the best places to find help in your area is the county office contact lookup page on the Alabama Department of Human Resources website. This page has a scroll-down menu to choose your county which will lead you to a page with your local HR office address and department phone numbers. Alabama's Child Protective Services is part of the DHR. To contact CPS directly call 334-242-9500. The main DHR phone number is 334-242-1310.

The Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence has a listing of shelters. Like the USA Cops and DHR sites, the listings are by county. You simply click on the map at the area you live and you will be taken to the appropriate info to get help now.

The 2-1-1 Connects Alabama project is a general community help service. By dialing 211 (a local call in the state), you will receive the information you need specific to your situation. If you're not sure what agency can help you, then this might be the best option for you. The staff will refer you to free community services that can help with domestic violence, food and shelter, mental health care, and legal help.
