Child abuse doesn't just affect the victim or their family. Its repercussions affect entire communities over multiple generations. It is a community problem which requires a community solution.

For this reason, individuals working in certain professions (school faculty and employees, counselors, medical providers, law enforcement, clergy, child care and social workers, and more) are required by law to report suspicions of child abuse to the Department of Health and Human Services, and risk facing a fine and/or jail time if they are found to be in noncompliance.

CARE House offers in-person certification training for these mandated reporters and now, thanks to the generosity of the Detroit Auto Dealers Association Charitable Foundation, we are pleased to offer a version of this training online. It takes 20-30 minutes and a certificate will be emailed to you upon completion of the training.
