In brief: If in school go

To the school nurse or counselor. They can help get in touch with local department of social services(dss) workers (or dfs - department of family services workers) who will come and talk to children in need at school.
If not in school, a trusted friend or friend's family can make that contact for you and if necessary talk to you at your friend's home if they are willing. Don't wait to do that.
