Description: The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation whose mission is to help find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation, and prevent child victimization. NCMEC works with families, victims, private industry, law enforcement, and the public. The Family Advocacy Division (FAD) is a specialized team of master-level trained child and family advocates who provide emotional support to families experiencing trauma when a child is missing or sexually exploited and offers expert guidance about how families can move forward. FAD’s family-centered approach helps create a collaborative environment to assist families, identify areas of need and find the right community-based resources to address those needs. With support from a committed network, including mental health providers, crisis intervention services, social service agencies, and law enforcement, the foundation is laid for the bright future every family wants and deserves.
