When you don't get any action from one level of authorities, go up the chain of command. Document everything you have seen and when, as well as what this young girl is saying. Consider contacting Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are aware of. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

Thank you for sharing what's happening in your community regarding child abuse reports with my visitors and me. You are a caring and compassionate man.

Oklahoma resources
by: Skruff

Here are some resources from Oklahoma. The State does do something about child abuse, BUT you have to get them motivated. Going to "private" and semi-private agencies with your suspicions is a good way to build a fire under their posteriors .

The C.A.R.E. center in Oklahoma City is a good place to start. Their web page will give you tips on how to make an effective call to D.H.S.


Call 911, and report the child abuse anonymously.
Call many times from different phones.

Call the D.H.S. again, and tell them you are going to call the Newspapers and T.V. stations. mention the Kluths and tell them about the black-eye that case gave State workers.

Remember April is child abuse awareness month, and The State is hosting many activities to make people aware of child abuse. Mention that and ask them if they want to do something, or just talk.


Call the Oklahoma Department of Family and Health, and report the case to them. When they try to give you the number to D.H.S. tell them you have already called, and that you got no action.

Then follow through. Call the radio, T.V. stations and the big Newspapers,
