Mandated Reporter Portal

Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) now has an innovative and secure website, VaCPS, which allows Virginia mandated reporters the ability to expedite the submission of a report of suspected child abuse or neglect directly to the VDSS State Hotline. This tool is ONLY for reports of suspected CHILD abuse or neglect that is not an emergency.

VDSS knows partnering with mandated reporters across the Commonwealth is essential to the safety, permanency, and well-being of Virginia's children. Submitting a report regarding possible child maltreatment is the first step to begin the helping process. VDSS values your commitment to Virginia's children and your desire to strengthen families in the Commonwealth.
