BEND, OR -- The number of calls to the state of Oregon’s Child Abuse Hotline has dropped 70-per cent since the closure of K-12 schools. Rachel Visser at the Kids Center says children no longer have access to teachers, counselors and other adults they trust and this could lead to a spike in abuse cases.  Visser says the Kids Center is stepping up its education campaign with new blogs about preventing child abuse and neglect on their webpage. She also urges people who suspect a child is being abused, to contact police or make a report to the Department of Human Services Child Abuse Hotline.
