About the FSFN - Abuse Reporting Portal

The FSFN - Abuse Reporting Portal serves as the central reporting center for allegations of abuse,  neglect, and/or exploitation for all children and vulnerable adults in Florida. The Hotline receives calls, faxes, and web based reports from citizens and professionals with concerns of abuse, neglect, or exploitation on children and vulnerable adults in Florida.

The FSFN - Abuse Reporting Portal assesses the information provided by the concerned person and determines if the information provided meets statutory criteria for the Department of Children and Families to conduct an investigation.

More than 1 million children are victims of child abuse and neglect each year. Yet, many of these victims don't receive the help they need because their abuse or neglect isn't reported to the proper authorities to intervene or investigate. These abused and neglected children span all ages, races, religions and socio-economic backgrounds. Child abuse or neglect includes actions or omissions that result in imminent threat of serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or sexual exploitation, or death of a child under age 18 by a parent or other caregiver.

When parents can't, don't or won't protect their children, the Department of Children & Families steps in to help:
