Hotline Magnets

For general community outreach. Use magnets as giveaways, leave behinds, or handy reminders to keep the hotline in the line of sight for family, friends, neighbors or mandatory reporters.

Hotline Business Card

Get the hotline into the hands of those who may need to make a report. Use hotline business cards as a quick reference tool to raise general public awareness by leaving them behind at your favorite establishments, hand them out with packets, or even in combination with your own business cards. Anyone can keep these in their wallet, and they may be especially handy for mandatory reporters who work with children and families often.
