Recover a Missing Child
At The Committee for Missing Children, our sole goal is to help parents recover a missing child. We do this by helping parents connect with resources in the local area including law enforcement agencies, and nonprofit organizations who may be able to help parents find their children. We also are capable of providing financial assistance to families who need it. This can in some cases include travel expenses, hotel rooms, plane tickets, food expenses, and more.
Casting a Wide Net
At The Committee for Missing Children, we work hard to reconnect children with their parents. We understand that this time can be stressful for children and parents alike. That is why there is nothing better than hearing about how our clients are able to reunite with their children. If you are looking for a missing child, we would be happy to put forth the same effort for you.
Tireless Advocacy for Child Protection
In addition, we also advocate for parents of missing children. If your child is missing, you may feel like you are alone in the world. You may feel like nobody is listening to you. Trust us when we say we are here to listen to you. We will take the time to hear every word you have to say. Then, we will provide you with access to resources that can be helpful. We are tireless advocates on your behalf.
