National Missing Children’s Day
May 25 was declared National Missing Children’s Day by the Reagan Administration in 1983, three years after Child Find was founded. National Missing Children’s Day is an annual opportunity to raise awareness on missing children crises in the United States. With about 2,300 children reported missing every day in the United States, this day serves as an important reminder to make child safety and well-being a priority in our communities.
Every May 25, we remember the children and families that we have served for nearly 40 years (who you can learn about in our Family Stories.) We honor the children who are taken or lost from their families and the devastated parents we help when their worst nightmare becomes reality. Equally, we commemorate the children that we are still searching for, never losing hope that one day they will be reunited with their families.
If you would like to honor the children and families that Child Find serves and help us bring more missing children home with a special National Missing Children’s Day gift, please click here.
As the nation’s first national missing children’s organization, and with an A+ rating from Charity Watch for 22 consecutive years, we guarantee that at least 90% of your donation will directly support Child Find’s program services.
