An important way to protect children is to report any suspicions of child abuse and neglect to Child Welfare Services (CWS). Mandated reporters and community members can use Protecting Children: Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect to learn the warning signs of abuse and neglect and how to report suspected child abuse and neglect. YCCA prepared this document as a project of the Yolo County Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC) in collaboration with Yolo County CWS. If you suspect that a child is being abused or neglected, please call Yolo County Child Welfare Services at (888) 400-0022 (toll-free) or (530) 669-2345 (local). CWS welcomes consultation calls.
