This program started on a wing and a prayer to help find missing children.
For over 3 years, our founder Sherry trudged along and just made ends meet while keeping on task. The first funding came from the Florida Legislature. We were off and running!
Once state funding was secured, Sherry ventured to Washington, DC to look for federal funding. The late Congressman E. Clay Shaw requested and obtained funding for the expansion of A Child Is Missing.
Funding came from the US Government in the form of earmarks (which no longer exists). A Child Is Missing now relies on private funding, fundraisers, grants, states and law enforcement to provide funding.
