The safety and well-being of children is everyone’s responsibility.

If you suspect a child is being abused or neglected, please report it. While it is not your job to investigate, it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure children in our community are safe, loved, provided for, and have their physical and emotional needs met.

To report suspected child abuse or neglect, please contact San Benito County Child Protective Services at 831-636-4190.
If the situation appears to be an emergency, contact authorities immediately at 911.

San Benito County is in need of local Resource (foster) Families. Could you open your heart, and your home, to a child in need? To learn more or become a Resource Parent, please contact San Benito County’s Resource Family Approval Unit at 831-636-4382.
