Partners

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® coordinates dynamic corporate partnerships that provide vital in-kind and financial support to our operations. We rely on our corporate partners as we craft crucial prevention and safety programming and provide services and support to families, the public, law enforcement, and other professionals to help recover missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation, and prevent future victimization.

These partnerships have dramatically enriched our efforts and enhanced our results. The stronger they become, the more progress we make in protecting our nation's children.
