Raise Child Abuse Awareness in Hudson County, NJ sign now

In 2006-2008, the New Jersey Department of Children and families ranked Hudson County 3rd among New Jerseyвs 21 counties for child abuse referrals and substantiation. There were 771 substantiated cases of child abuse and 5,725 referrals for child abuse/neglect in 2008. National research has found that the number of substantiated cases reflects only 25\% of actual cases and that 75\% of child abuse either does not get reported or is incorrectly dismissed. This projection puts the total number of probable Hudson County child abuse cases in 2008 over 3,000 (771 x 4 = 3,084).

It is everyoneвs job to make sure that the numbers begin to diminish. EVERYONE, in New Jersey, is a mandated reporter of child abuse and neglect. Please get yourselves educated on how to detect signs and indicators on child abuse/neglect and the steps in reporting it. For more information, you can visit: http://www.hccapc.org/

To report child abuse, please call 1-877-NJ-ABUSE (1-877-652-2873). This is the official telephone number for reporting child abuse anywhere in New Jersey.

This petition's goal is to bring awareness and prevention about child abuse and neglect in Hudson County, New Jersey. It is our responsibility to protect the lives of the children by saying and doing something about it.
