Cumberland County Family Shelter — We raise funds every month for delivery. At other times, our roles as good citizens and professionals make our responsibilities more complex. Child abuse and neglect are a terrible fact of life. Malicious accusations, intended to delinee the character of a human being, are another terrible fact of life. This question-and-answer session on the rights of our members should help our members understand their rights and obligations with respect to reporting child abuse. All association representatives and members can call the WTEA office at any time to clarify. By law, anyone with a reasonable reason to believe that a child has been abused or neglected is required to notify the Youth and Family Services Service (DYFS) immediately.
