Apr 28, 2020 06:03PM ● By Fred Parent Contributor


The City of Fredericksburg’s Department of Social Services recognizes that we are experiencing a very difficult time and wants everyone to know that they are here to help! They have officially extended Child Abuse Prevention “month” until the current Shelter in Place order is lifted by Governor Northam.

If you are worried about a child, you can reach out (anonymously if you prefer) to someone who can help. To make a child or adult protective services referral to Fredericksburg Social Services between 8 a.m. and  4:30 p.m. call (540) 940-2401 or (540) 372-1032 ext. 298. After hours, call (800) 552-7096 (Child Protective Services Hotline) or (888) 832-3858 (Adult Protective Services Hotline).

Keep kids safe in our community and stay strong Fredericksburg!
