The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® is a non—profit 501(c)(3) corporation whose mission is to help find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation, and prevent child victimization.
Since 1984, NCMEC has served as the national clearinghouse and resource center for families, victims, private organizations, law enforcement and the public on issues relating to missing and sexually exploited children.
The nation’s resource for the issues of missing and sexually exploited children.
At the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children we believe every child deserves a safe childhood. For more than 30 years we have been at the forefront of the fight to keep our children safer from abduction and sexual exploitation.
In all of our work we collaborate with law enforcement, legislators, corporations, and communities. We serve as the national clearinghouse – providing the resources, information, and focus needed to help recover and protect children, and prevent these devastating crimes committed against children.
