Mandated Reporter / Community Outreach Program

To report suspected child abuse or neglect in Sonoma County, call Family, Youth, and Children's Services at 707.565.4304 or 800.870.7064, Fax: 707.565.4324

The Child Parent Institute is excited to announce our partnership with Sonoma County’s Family, Youth & Children’s Services (FY&C) in the implementation of the new Mandated Reporter / Community Outreach Program. One report of child abuse, followed by successful intervention or support services may be the catalyst for bringing about positive change in the home environment, providing children with a brighter more successful future.

The mission of this program is to not only help mandated reporters identify and report suspected child abuse and neglect, but to also increase familiarity about what happens after a report is made, how FY&C engages with families, and how the community is involved in the decision making process. This training will spread awareness about child abuse prevention and arm community partners with the tools and resources needed to play an active role in preventing child maltreatment. Training is available to: 

● Schools
● Hospitals / Clinics
● Law Enforcement
● Medical Professionals
● Mental Health Professionals
● Faith-based organizations
● Non-profits
● Community Agencies

To schedule a free onsite mandated reporter training that is specifically tailored to your agency please contact, Monica Edwards at 707.565.4325 or or Hayly Peacock  at 707.565.4329 or
