Report clergy sex abuse

Our office is gathering information regarding sexual abuse by spiritual leaders and clergy in Iowa to better understand this issue and evaluate what actions we may take.

If you want to report current or ongoing sex abuse, please call your local law enforcement agency. 

To report past abuse, complete the form below and hit submit. An investigator will review your report and may contact you for additional information. All questions are optional. Your identity will remain confidential unless you give permission.  

Or you can call our clergy abuse hotline at 855-620-7000 (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.) to speak with a trained advocate.  

We respect the difficulty of coming forward with information regarding sexual abuse and appreciate your courage in doing so.
