The 1-800-CHILDREN call line and resource directory provides access to anonymous, judgment-free parenting support. Families can easily connect with information, local resources, and support they need 24/7, even if what they need is a listening ear. No question is off limits! 1-800-CHILDREN is available in English, Spanish and 200 additional languages.
To speak to a real person call 1-800-CHILDREN. If your phone does not have a Kansas area code please call 1-800-332-6378. In addition to calling, you can reach 1-800-CHILDREN by sending a text or email to: 1800Children@kcsl.org.
1800ChildrenKS.org is a searchable database of statewide resources. You can download the mobile phone app 1800ChildrenKS for free whenever you find your apps to search a mobile friendly version of the resource database.
The 1-800-CHILDREN Hotline should not be confused with the Kansas School Safety Hotline. The School Safety Hotline (1-800-332-6378) should still be used to report potential violent acts at schools. Students who feel unsafe at school could call either hotline; the professionals at the 1-800-CHILDREN Hotline will forward any calls where they feel there is the potential for violence, or that a student may harm him or herself or others to the School Safety Hotline.
It is hoped the 1-800-CHILDREN Hotline will serve as one more resource to assist us in creating a safe and secure environment in our schools.
