REPORT FRAUD, labor violations, AND ABUSE!

HEAL receives thousands of reports of fraud and abuse at residential and wilderness programs for children and youth each year.  Case by case, we work with families and individuals helping them file complaints and reports with the proper agencies.  In order to better assist all victims of institutionalized fraud and abuse, we have created this directory.  If you are a victim of institutionalized fraud and/or abuse, please file complaints with the appropriate agencies below.

In addition, if you are an employee or former employee who was harassed, denied breaks, unpaid or under-paid for hours worked, or subjected to any violation of United States labor standards, please report your employer/former employer to the appropriate labor law enforcement agency below.

(Special Note: Please report facilities and individuals operating without a license to the appropriate licensing enforcement agencies.)
