Clergy Abuse Resources

The Attorney General’s Office is dedicated to keeping Missouri families and communities safe. If you are a victim of sexual abuse, including clergy abuse, or if you believe you have witnessed clergy abuse, the following resources are available:

  • Clergy Abuse Victim Form
    • Victims of abuse or those who believe they may have witnessed abuse are encouraged to submit this form to provide relevant details and contact information. An investigator from the Attorney General’s Office will follow up to investigate these reports.
  • The Missouri Child Abuse Hotline –1.800.392.3738 (if the victim is currently under the age of 18).
  • Local law enforcement agencies—If the victim is in immediate danger, call 911.

Please note, in Missouri, jurisdiction to formally investigate alleged criminal activity of this nature lies with local law enforcement, not the Attorney General.
