How much information/proof is needed for her to call CPS? She doesn't have any physical proof, but she is mentally and physically abused on a regular basis. She has a younger sister and she doesn't want to have her removed because she is fine with the parents. The parents seem to resent the older daughter because they had her at 16 when they were just teens.

But what about the younger sister? She doesn't get the same treatment as the older sister. Would CPS pull them both?
If she calls CPS does she have the option to go to my home to keep her safe. She is so afraid to let them know because she would be fearful of her father. He has basically threatened her on a regular basis that he would hurt her.
