Reporting child abuse or neglect
OYO is a mandated reporter. This means that our office must report suspected abuse or neglect to the state. If you describe abuse or neglect in this form, we will contact Pennsylvania’s ChildLine on your behalf.
To report child abuse or neglect yourself, call ChildLine at (800) 932-0313. They accept reports 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
