Child Find of America

Options: Vision, Mission and/or Purpose of Organization

Child Find of America, Inc. is a national not-for-profit organization that provides professional services designed to prevent and resolve child abduction and the family conflicts that can lead to abduction and abuse.

History of Organization:

Child Find of America was founded in 1980 by the mother of a missing child when little was understood about the devastation child abduction has on the child. Child Find has played a significant role in the creation of laws that now make all forms of child abduction a crime; in the establishment of a national clearinghouse to assist law enforcement in their investigations; in the establishment of May 25th as National Missing Children’s Day and in the increased media attention given to missing children cases.

Over the years Child Find has greatly expanded its scope of services, providing prevention, education, mediation, conflict resolution, investigation, information and referral and support services to families in crisis here in America and internationally in more than a dozen countries. Child Find prides itself as being a national expert in the prevention and resolution of parental/family abduction.
Child Find's sound fiscal management and effective programming has earned high praise from charity watch groups, the media, law enforcement and social service agencies.

Options: Accreditations and Licenses

Child Find has earned an A+ rating for the American Institute of Philanthropy’s Charity Watch annually since 1997, spending more than 90 cents of every dollar donated directly on providing program services.
